This print was issued as a souvenir in the Richmond Post Dispatch for the reunion of United Confederate Veterans in Richmond in 1896. Various officers of the Confederacy are shown in the print: Robert E. Lee - Secretary of the Treasury George Trenholm - Secretary of War John C. Breckinridge - Secretary of State Judah P. (J.P.) Benjamin - President Jefferson Davis - Vice President Alexander H. Stephens - Attorney General George Davis - Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory - Postmaster General John H. Reagan - Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. In the center is a rendering of a design for The Davis Monument which was never built as shown but a more scaled down monument was erected instead in 1907. Above the monument are the words “Our Lost Cause.” This print is very scarce as it was issued as a supplement in a newspaper.
