Title: Mistick Krewe of Comus 1873 Missing Links Parade Costume Designs
This collection is the complete set of costume design drawings for the 1873 Mistick
Krewe of Comus "Missing Links" parade. It was an important event in New Orleans'
Mardi Gras history, becoming one of the first major parades to use satire and
political commentary. Many of the images depict figures related to the Civil War and
Reconstruction, such as Ulysses S. Grant, Benjamin Butler, and Louisiana Governor
Henry Warmoth. Also depicted are notable figures such as Charles Darwin, and Algernon
Badger (head of the Metropolitan Police).
