The bugaboo of the anti-expansionist

Keppler, Udo J., 1872-1956
President McKinley rides an elephant driven by Marcus A. Hanna. The elephant is carrying Russell A. Alger, Nelson Dingley, William R. Day, and William T. Sampson. A second elephant follows, and a group of men that includes "Nelson A. Miles, Theodore Roosevelt, Joseph Wheeler, Fitzhugh Lee, Henry C. Lodge, William R. Shafter, Winfield S. Schley, John T. Morgan, Cushman K. Davis, George Dewey," and others, march alongside under the standard "Imperialism for Ever." A group of disgruntled men sit on the roadside, watching the procession.
