This thread of tweets is lifted from witness testimony for the prosecution of the trial of Jefferson Davis in 1868.

P.S. I know it’s not the official flag.


Some have rightly pointed out that the trial of Jefferson Davis never officially went forward as he was granted amnesty. The source of today’s comic actually comes from witness testimony of the Lincoln assassination trial.

This humble cartoonist regrets the error (but not of calling Trump a Confederate traitor)
