The end of the republican party After The Destruction of Jer

The end of the republican party After The Destruction of Jerusalem by Kaulbach. After a large painting by Wilhelm von Kaulbach showing the destruction of Jerusalem, this print shows the demise of the Republican Party with various Republicans, Mugwumps, Democrats, and allegorical figures, along with portraits of Jefferson, Washington, and Lincoln, as well as the newly elected Democratic president Grover Cleveland on horseback (as the Roman emperor Titus), with Vice President Thomas A. Hendricks on horseback behind him, and Carl Schurz and another man, carrying fasces, walking beside them. At center appears Samuel Tilden holding up a shield labeled 1876 and brandishing a short sword. He appears about to strike a man, possibly Rutherford B. Hayes, winner of the controversial 1876 presidential election. Moving toward the foreground, James G. Blaine is standing with a large dagger raised, which he is about to plunge into a fainted female figure labeled Republican Party supported by his left arm; kneeling beside Blaine is Benjamin Butler holding a jester doll. Three crouching figures in front of Butler are Chester A. Arthur, John A. Logan, and an unidentified man wearing glasses. A man labeled Corruption, possibly John Roach, flees to the left, pursued by three male furies. On the far right is a flight to Egypt scene with a Madonna and two children riding on a mule, which has stopped to graze on a thistle, other figures are around them, as well as two men walking in the midst who may be Henry Ward Beecher and Thomas F. Bayard. Above the central figures are three trumpeters, one holding a staff topped with an eagle and bearing the initials G.C., hearlding the arrival of Grover Cleveland. Above these figures appears a horde of angels wielding rushes. In the upper left corner, several people are standing at the entrance to a temple, among them are Whitelaw Reid and John St. John. Date 1884?, c1884 October. The end of the republican party After The Destruction of Jerusalem by
