Will the cost/sacrifice of butting heads end in a reconciled North & South? Interestingly, the question lingers: the current health care controversy is a conflict of states' rights vs. federal rights.

My initial idea for this sketch was to show Snowland as an anachronism. Sort of having fun with the concept of the deck being used by an historical figure. Lincoln came to mind almost immediately.

So, riffing on that possibility it seemed obvious to have him doing a 3-card spread concerning the Civil War and its outcome.

The first card (Past) is Scrooge counting his money (4 Material aka 4 of Coins). A safe or file cabinet sits CHAINED behind him while carolers serenade outside his window.

The second card (Present--1861, the beginning of the Civil War) shows two rams locked in a fight (2 Energy aka 2 of Wands). This card corresponds to the conflict that raged between North and South, brother against brother.

The third card (Future) shows resolution of the long war: a peace is reached and future generations usher in a new age of hope as signified by the sunrise breaking through the clouds (10 Mental aka 10 of Swords).

So if you can imagine Abraham Lincoln consulting the cards, who knows where the Snowland Deck may pop up next... :-)
