The print is a reproduction of an 1865 political cartoon depicting caricatures of two African-American men. The cartoon shows the aftermath of a heated political debate between the two men. Both men are seated on the floor. The man to the left has a poster of George Washington crushed over his head and sits beneath a poster of Abraham Lincoln. The man at the right holds his head and is seated beneath a poster of Ulysses S. Grant. A third man, a police constable, peeks through a door at the center of the room. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
