The print is a reproduction of a political cartoon (originally published in the 7 March 1868 edition of Harper's Weekly) that references the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. In the cartoon, Ulysses S. Grant and Edwin Stanton stand near a cannon labeled "Congress." The cannon takes aim at Lorenzo Thomas and President Johnson. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
