“The Question Settled” is a print by the E.B. and E.C Kellogg Company, which ranked among the more popular producers of mass-market illustrations. The image, which dates from either late 1864 or early 1865, depicts “Old Abe” — the white cat — displacing “Jeff [Davis]” from the milk dish, which rests atop a map of the rebellious South. Cowering behind Lincoln is a cat labeled “Contraband,” which refers (I am assuming) to slaves captured from Southern plantations or black refugees spirited beyond union lines.

What thrills me here is the depiction of Abraham lincoln as a fluffy white cat. I can’t recall ever seeing an American president depicted in feline form.
