Political Cartoons
This cartoon was based on the civil war reconstruction era.
Image Analysis
This image was displayed during the time of Radical Republicans argued over the issue of slavery and the admonishment of it. At the time , President Lincoln began the Reconstruction in 1863 when he implemented his 10% Plan. But which the Radicals opposed. The opposing faction of the Radical Republicans where very skeptical of the south's intentions and demanded for the creation of the stringent action.

The Radicals argued that secession could destroy the statehood but the Constitution extended its authority and protection over individuals in existing U.S. territories. Many republicans sought the prevention of southern politicians from ' restoring the subordination of african americans' slavery was abolished , the 3/5ths compromise no longer applied to count the population. This is where the political cartoon comes into play. After the president Lincoln was assassinated in 1865, Andrew Johnson, who was elected with Lincoln in 1864 as vice president became president. Johnson had rejected the radical program of reconstruction and instead appointed his own governors and tried to finish reconstruction by the end of 1865.

Many opposed Johnson's sudden end to reconstruction. In response Republicans together , passed bills that over turned Johnson's veto. This image represents Andrew Johnson and Abraham Lincoln in 1865, it was named ' The Rail Splitter at work repairing the union'. You may recognize this quote, "Take it quietly Uncle Abe and I will draw it closer than ever, " A few more stitches Andy and the good old Union will be mended".

Some of the biases found in this image can be seen from a far. The people depicted here are arguing over how to mend the country after having ended slavery. One person favors the quick and handful of states to be unified with their own chosen few in power while others prefer a slow and steady route to correctly place the orders correctly. They used a powerful abolitionist to favor their views and used a chosen individual from the abolitionist to support the other. People will shift to whom they prefer demonstrates their ideals.
