Additional Details

Horace Greely struggles to do a pull-up in his effort to gain the New York governorship, while Lincoln is easily astride his own bar offering helpful advice: "You must do as I did, Greely, get somebody to give you a boost. I'm sure I never could have got up here by my own efforts." Lincoln's opponents, as well Edward Everett and William Seward, are also featured. Reilly 1860-34.
