A jubilant Northern portrayal of the rout of Missouri secessionist governor Claiborne F. Jackson and Gen. Sterling Price at Booneville on June 17, 1861. (See "Strayed," no. 1861-31.)
Here a lion with the head of Union commander Nathaniel Lyon chases Jackson (center) and Price toward the right. Jackson, wearing a woman's skirt and bonnet, cries to Price, "Let out! General, let out! he's getting close to us." "Oh Govner Jackson I'm trying all I can to hold in," responds Price, as he clutches his stomach and rump. (The scatological implication is more blatantly developed in "Strayed.")
Weitenkampf quite rightly attributes the unsigned work to Currier & Ives.
