Thomas Nast's "Thanksgiving-Day 1863"
This is another touching
Thomas Nast print of Lady Liberty. The print is a centerfold from an
original 1863 Harper's Weekly. The print shows Lady Liberty kneeling, in
earnest prayer for peace. She is surrounded by inset images of the Nation in
prayer. A group of slaves is shown praying for freedom. Another inset shows
the inside of a church, the congregation praying for peace. In the lower
right corner a group in the country can be seen on their knees praying. In
the upper image, Abraham Lincoln can be seen on his knees praying for
guidance. Two other insets show prayers by the Army and the Navy.
