THIS IS AN ANTIQUE PATRIOTIC PRINT THAT FEATURES GEORGE WASHINGTON FRAMED WITH CLOUDS AND THE WHITE HOUSE IN THE BACKGROUND.  THE PRINT DATES FROM 1860 AND WAS PRODUCED TO CREATE A SENSE OF UNITY BETWEEN THE NORTH AND SOUTH AS TENSION BETWEEN BOTH SIDES INCREASED AND THE CIVIL WAR BEGUN.  THE PRINT IN THE FRAME MEASURES ABOUT 17" X 13." IT DOES HAVE SOME YELLOWING AND LIGHT STAINING TO THE NON-COLORED AREA AROUND THE PICTURE. 

THE FOLLOWING IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE PRINT FROM A MUSEUM:

George Washington standing at center in clouds below capital building center top. Mount Vernon lower right corner in image, gates in front of tomb lower left corner in image. There is narrative under two columns under title.

 

At the dawn of the Civil War, images were created to encourage harmony between the North and South in order to dissuade Southern secession. In this print, George Washington, framed by billowing clouds and flanked by images of Mount Vernon, the Capitol and his tomb, represents a call for peace. A wish for freedom from strife is further indicated by the inscription at the bottom of the print, which reads: Lo! On High the glorious form, Of Washington Lights all the gloom; And words of warning seem to come, From out the portal of his tomb; “Americans your fathers shed Their blood to rear the Union’s fare, Then let your blood as free be given, The bond of union to maintain.”
