THE RESULT OF THE FIFTEENTH AMENDMENT, And the Rise and Progress of the African Race in America and its final Accomplishment, and Celebration on May 19th A.D. 1870.
Complete Explanation:
A slightly altered version of another print by the same title also issued by Metcalf and Clark (no. 1870-2), commemorating the enactment of the Fifteenth Amendment and its celebration in Baltimore.

In the center is a redrawn view of the parade on Monument Street. The vignettes surrounding the central scene are also redrawn and placed in a different arrangement, with the plantation and battle scenes appearing in the lower corners. Around the central group of busts (poorly drawn) of Bond, Brown, and Colfax, above, are various tools and implements, and two urns.
