VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THIS SCARCE JEFFERSON DAVIS PATRIOTIC DESIGN IN BLUE, ENHANCED BY THE BLUE DAVIS LITHOGRAPHED ISSUE.
The blue-on-blue Jefferson Davis combination makes this a very striking Patriotic cover
VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF CONFEDERATE USE OF BRECKINRIDGE NORTHERN 1860 CAMPAIGN COVER.
Breckinridge was a Kentucky lawyer and politician who served as Vice President of the U.S. from 1857-61. He came in third in the popular vote and second in the electoral vote, ahead of Bell and Douglas in the 1860 election. He instead became a senator, until he was expelled (and convicted of treason by the Senate) for joining the Confederate army. As an interesting side note, his cousin was Mary Todd Lincoln. This cover, depicting the pro-Southern Breckinridge, could be interpreted as a Patriotic use.
