"Blaine and Evarts Find That Hayes Does Not Like the Shirt"

In this cartoon, James Blaine (center) and William Maxwell Evarts (right) attempt to keep a shirt labeled "Bloody" on Rutherford Hayes, who struggles to remove it. "Waving the Bloody Shirt" was a Republican campaign tactic that was used to remind voters of the dishonor of the South in seceding and causing the Civil War, and the dishonor of the southern Democrats in destroying the Union.
