NATIONAL PICTURE. BEHOLD OH! AMERICA, YOUR SONS. The greatest among men.
   
Complete Explanation:
A smaller version of no. 1865-7, issued later the same year and printed from one rather than two lithographic stones. In this version the figure of Lincoln is more convincingly drawn, but the continent is cropped and misshapen. A scroll with the words "Our Country" crosses the shield held by Washington and Lincoln.
