EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a historical moment in American politics. The engraving, created by Thomas Nast in 1872 for Harper's Weekly, features prominent figures William Marcy Boss Tweed, James Ingersoll, and George Miller. The central figure of the caricature is Boss Tweed himself, known for his corrupt leadership of the Tammany Society and the Democratic Party Political Machine. His grotesque appearance reflects his scandalous reputation as a fraudster who shamelessly stole public money. Ingersoll, depicted alongside Tweed, received an exorbitant sum of nearly 6 million dollars for furniture and carpets. Meanwhile, Miller, a carpenter by trade, was shockingly paid over 60 thousand dollars for just one month's work. This iconic political satire titled "Who Stole the Peoples Money" captures the essence of government corruption during this era. It serves as a powerful reminder of how power can be abused and misused within our democratic system. Through Nast's skillful artistry and biting commentary on illegal activities within the United States government at that time, this cartoon has become one of America's most famous political satirical pieces. As we gaze upon this historic image today, it prompts us to reflect on past scandals while also reminding us to remain vigilant against corruption in our own time.
