McClellan, the 1864 Democratic Party presidential candidate, is depicted as a lion. His running mate, George Pendleton, as a lamb; and a wizard-like Sammy Barlow as their handler. "Sammy Barlow" is Samuel Latham Mitchell Barlow [1826-1889], an owner of the New York World newspaper, a successful lawyer, and a noisy Democrat-Copperhead. He is occasionally called "Sammy Barlow" in satiric verse, "the great peace-shrieker of New York city," vociferously advocating a Copperhead platform [Philadelphia Evening Telegraph, 24 September 1864].
