I found it interesting that both Abe Lincoln and Jeff Davis were lampooned by cartoonists for the way they either started or ended their administrations. Lincoln was lambasted for being in disguise and sneaking into Washington City for his inauguration. On the reverse end, Davis was caricaturized for sneaking away from Richmond at the end of his administration, and being caught while in disguise in Georgia. I guess they share something in common, after all (besides their Kentucky birthplaces).
