Sale Number 988, Lot Number 185, Flag-of-Truce Mail: Richmond-Old Point ComfortCamp Douglas, Ill, Camp Douglas, IllCamp Douglas, Ill. Union patriotic cover depicting a turtle following a man in front of a palm tree headlined "A Copper-Head Butternut alias Peace Democrat." sent by a prisoner-of-war to Nicholasville Ky., oval censor handstamp "Camp Douglas, Prisoner's Letter, Examined" (Ty. II), 3c Rose (65), pre-use tear, tied by blue 8-point star with matching "Chicago Ill. Oct. 2 '64" double-circle datestamp, some edgewear and small stain on back

VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE PRISONER-OF-WAR USAGE OF AN ILLUSTRATED POLITICAL CARTOON COVER.

"Copperheads" was a derogatory term for a vocal group of northern Democrats who opposed the Civil War and pushed for a cessation of hostilities and a peace settlement with the Confederacy. This satirical design is rather scarce by itself. As a prisoner-of-war cover from a U.S. prison, it quite remarkable.
