The Union As It Was, Harper's Weekly, October 10, 1874. (The title alludes to the old ca. 1862 Copperhead campaign slogan "The Union as it was, the Constitution as it is".) On a pseudo-heraldic shield are portrayed a black family between a lynched body hanging from a tree and the remains of a burning schoolhouse, with the caption "Worse than Slavery". The "supporters" are a member of the White League and a hooded Ku Kluxer, shaking hands on the "Lost Cause".
