Thomas Nast's Original "Civil War Victory" Print

This is an incredible 1864 Thomas Nast illustration entitled "The Blessings of Victory".  It is an original leaf from an 1864 edition of Harper's Weekly.  The illustration prominently features Columbia and Lady Liberty. One is holding a sword, signifying war, and the other the palm branch, signifying peace.  The illustration has the caption, "Victory Will Bring Us Peace".  It is an early example of a theme that resonates even today, of, Peace through Strength.

The two iconic women are seen standing on the clouds, with the heavenly hosts in the background holding both swords and trumpets.

In the upper left is an image showing Civil War prisoners being released and returned home, and the upper right image shows a tearful reunion as a Civil War Soldier returns home to the hugs and kisses of his wife. This inset is captioned, "The Veterans Welcome". 

The lower left image is captioned, "The Traitors", and shows Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee in prison.

The lower right image shows a picture of a happy slave family, recently freed from slavery.  This image is captioned, "No More Slavery". 

This is a wonderful Thomas Nast illustration, and presents hope to a country growing weary of war.
