More about this image:
Published in "Puck" February 28, 1877. While the idea is based on a pun, it depicts the situation of the Democratic Party in the last months of 1876 with a forceful aptitude and force. This cartoon appeared at the time when the Democrats in Congress had been tricked into accepting the Electoral Commission scheme, which gave the Presidency to Hays over Tilden.
