IMAGE REVIEW Week 1 “Of Course He Wants to Vote the Democratic Ticket” Harpers Weekly, October 21, 1877 Who? Harpers Weekly What? The picture shows two white men holding a gun to a black man’s head with the caption “Of Course He wants to vote the democratic ticket”. So after the war, when freedmen were allowed to vote, white men still wanted control over their political system and didn’t care what their former slaves opinions were so they were going to force their own opinions on them. When? 1877, the end of Reconstruction. Where? America, most likely the South. Why? Probably to influence black voters to vote the Democratic ticket In the late 1800s the shocking inequalities between the huge fortunes of the nation's "captains of industry" and an evergrowing population of impoverished workers drove Americans to grapple with questions about the rights of workers and employers. This 1883 editorial cartoon mocked the claims that plutocrat businessmen were the protectors of American industries by presenting Cyrus Field, Jay Gould, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and Russell Sage as bloated parasites sitting on bags of "millions," and protective bulwarks resting on the backs industrial workers making only $6 to $11 a week. Who? Native Americans What? Assimilation The two pictures of the same man taken before and after assimilation. Notice in the one on the left, his skin is darker, he has many symbols of his culture. On the right, he has literally been “whitened” from the many hours spent inside. Americans were threatened by Native Americans and wanted their land so they made the Native Americans lose their culture and adapt an American one. This is a political cartoon from the mid1890s depicting how Spanish misrule in Cuba was fanning the flames of rebellion. Senate measure stated that under no circumstances would the United States annex Cuba after helping Cuba win its independence from Spain. Muckraking press were suggesting that the Cuban people would be better off "under the protection" of the U.S. The Teller Amendment was a measure to counter the accusations that the War with Spain was an imperialist ploy to gain more land. Cartoon: Shows the Cuban predicament of going from Spanish misrule to anarchy. Used by people who wanted the U.S. to step in and rule Cuba (it didn't happen). This picture depicts women suffrage during the Progressive era. It shows women taking what they could do at home and applying it to the public sphere, by cleaning it up and having a voice. Before cocaine was identified as a harmful drug, it was put in medicine. This one, cocaine drops were sold around 1885 in New York for children’s tootaches. During the WW1, The Food Administration, led by Herbert Hoover released this image with the caption “food is ammunition, don’t waste it.” Food is ammunition meant that a soldier literally couldn’t shoot his gun and fight in the war if he didn’t have food to eat. So, if you wanted America to win the war, you would grow your own food and let store food be sent out to the soldiers. The Silent Sentinels were a group of women in favor of women's suffrage organized by Alice Paul and the National Woman's Party. They protested in front of the White House during Woodrow Wilson’s presidency starting on January 10, 1917. The women protested for six days a week until June 4, 1919 when the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed both by the House of Representatives and the Senate.
