"Andrew Johnson's Reconstruction and How it Works"
This cartoon by Thomas Nast shows Andrew Johnson as the deceitful Iago who betrayed Othello, portrayed here as an African-American Civil War veteran. It includes scenes of a slave auction, whites attacking African-Americans in Memphis and New Orleans, and "Copperhead" and "C.S.A." snakes wrapped around an African-American man. While Andrew Johnson charms the snakes, his cabinet watches.
