As we prepare for the midterm elections next month, many feel that the political climate has never been worse. Attacks on the press with accusations of “fake news” are rampant. Yet looking back on the history of political commentary, writers and cartoonists have never particularly been known for prudence and kindness. One of the masters of the trade was Thomas Nast, editorial cartoonist for Harper’s Weekly throughout the Civil War and into the late 19th century. Creator of the Republican Elephant, Democratic Donkey and good old Uncle Sam, he swayed readers with his clever wit and imaginative cartoons. See below for some of our favorites from the original Harper’s Weekly magazines.
