"Tilden or Blood"

After the electoral commission of 1877 finally decided that Rutherford B. Hayes would be the next president, the Democrats were outraged. In several states, Democrats still tried to find ways to get Samuel J. Tilden into the White House. They used "Tilden or blood" as their slogan, which can be seen in this illustration by Thomas Nast. It was published in the February 17, 1877 Harper's Weekly.
