"Set-To Between the Champion Old Tip & The Swell Dutchman of Kinderhook"

This pro-Harrison political cartoon satirizes the 1836 presidential election as a boxing match between Martin Van Buren with William Henry Harrison. They are cheered on by their seconds and the crowd. President Andrew Jackson and Amos Kendall are Van Buren's seconds. A "Western Lad" (representing the frontier) and "Old Seventy Six" (a lame Revolutionary war veteran) are Harrison's seconds.
