Printed early Civil War era racist penny song sheet, 1p. 8vo., entitled: "Whack De Row" with illustrated borders of cartoonish Black people characterizations including a Black man playing a banjo with a pair of cupid babies flanking a banner with "Ethopian" boldly printed on it. Published by H. de Marsan, NYC, and sold by merchant T. C. Boyd, San Francisco. Lyrics read, in small part: "Good people all, both great and small…if you got a little time to spare…our Union and our Constitution must wave…Whack! row de dow…our Flag we're bound to save. Down South, there's General Beauregard…we'll have no more Bull-Run affairs…for, we've got a brave McClellan now…how are you, General Bowgun?…wat's de matter. Now there's our gallant Sixty-ninth…and our bully boys, the Fire-Zouaves with their little Minnie Rifles…who will show the southern chivalry. No fool is Yankee Doodle Dandy…Whack! row de dow…". Minor toning, else VG
