"Effect of the Vote on the Eleventh Article of Impeachment"

It was the eleventh article that was the first to be voted on at the impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson. The vote resulted in the acquittal of the President by a vote of 19 nays to 35 yeas. In the left hand part of this cartoon, Andrew Johnson dances in celebration; he has a bottle in one hand and a scroll in the other. Underneath this portion is written "Elevation - at the White House." In the right hand part of the cartoon, the offices of the Herald Tribune are shown. The fainting man in the center of the group is Horace Greeley, editor of the Tribune. The words underneath are "Depression - at the Tribune Office." This was an illustration in the May 30, 1868 issue of Harper's Weekly.
