Marriage of the Free Soil and Liberty Parties

- O’ BUT HOW THE CAUCASIAN RACE HATES ITSELF!-

FROM: the Smithsonian Institute, National Museum of American History, Among the Harry T. Peters ‘America on Stone’ lithograph collection, which provide a distinctive view of 19th-century American life, as depicted in prints.

“Some prints in the Peters Collection, particularly the comic prints and political caricatures, reflect 19th-century attitudes about race and ethnicity. These prints contain language and imagery that today are viewed as stereotypes and considered offensive. However, they are part of an accurate historical record necessary to understand the complexity of the American past.”
