This cartoon, “Lincoln’s Last Warning,” published in Harper’s Weekly, on October 11, 1862, also deals with the subject of emancipation. The President is depicted about to apply the axe to the tree of slavery, and saying to Davis, who is crouching in its branches: “If you don’t come down, I’ll cut the tree from under you.”
