"The Copperhead publication The Old Guard was a "monthly journal devoted to the principles of 1776 and 1787". Published in New York, by Burr, it attacked President Abraham Lincoln in every number, while defending slavery and the right of secession. It claimed to be "the only magazine published in the United States which is devoted to a fearless and uncompromising exposure of the monstrous crimes and frauds of the party in power." Lincoln was often referred to as "Abraham I"; the conflict was "the Lincoln War" fought by "the Abolition Army"." There is constant mention of "The Rump Congress" and the Rump Revolution. Most articles discuss the American Congress and discuss the problems of Abraham Lincoln. Other articles discuss politics or political science in the United States or elsewhere. There are hints that the sentiments of the editorial staff are pro-slavery.
