On a pedestal in an oval a woman is seated with three children under the caption "God assisting us, nothing is to be feared." To the right stands a woman holding a staff on which is a liberty cap, to the left another woman, with cornucopia, spreads her robe to welcome a man seated on the pedestal and an approaching family. A small shovel, a plow, and a sheep complete the scene on the pedestal.





Anderson, H. (Hugh), 1782-1866, engraver
