"Let Every One Take Care of Himself"

"Let Every One Take Care of Himself -- As the jack ass said when he was dancing among the chickens." This political cartoon satirizes Andrew Jackson's campaign to remove federal funds from the corrupt Second Bank of the United States and redistribute them in the state banks. Jackson is shown as a jackass dancing among the chicks (the state banks) in a barnyard. Vice President Martin Van Buren is shown as a fox, sneaking up on a chicken that is labeled the U.S. Bank. The baying dogs in the corner represent the newspapers sympathetic to Jackson's plan.
