A democratic indignation meeting

Keppler, Udo J., 1872-195
The ghost of Thomas Jefferson speaks to a gathering of the ghosts of John Tyler, Lewis Cass, James K. Polk, Stephen A. Douglas, Franklin Pierce, Andrew Jackson, William L. Marcy, Samuel J. Tilden, James Buchanan, Martin Van Buren, and John C. Calhoun. Jackson's right hand rests on a paper that states "Call for Indignation Meeting to Protest Against." Caption: Shade of Jefferson--And so, gentlemen, in view of the unpatriotic behavior of those professed Democrats in Congress, at a most trying moment in their country's history, I am regretfully forced to declare that our once glorious party has degenerated, and that the only good Democrats are dead ones.
