YOUNG AMERICA C.H. LILIENTHAL. N.Y.

Click for image enlargement
An advertising card or box label for New York tobacco distributor C. H. Lilienthal, featuring the figure of "Young America." The boy is a much younger counterpart of the central figure in "The Young America Schottisch" (1no. 1855-5). Both figures wear a short jacket, bold plaid trousers, and silk tie. Both prints, loosely but skillfully drawn, appear to be the work of a single artist. In keeping with the militaristic spirit of the present work, the youth stands holding a large, billowing American flag on the ramparts of a fortress. Behind him is a large cannon and another American flag.
