The ghost of Thomas Jefferson speaks to a gathering of the
ghosts of John Tyler, Lewis Cass, James K. Polk, Stephen A.
Douglas, Franklin Pierce, Andrew Jackson, William L. Marcy, Samuel
J. Tilden, James Buchanan, Martin Van Buren, and John C. Calhoun.
Jackson's right hand rests on a paper that states "Call for
Indignation Meeting to Protest Against." Caption: Shade of
Jefferson--And so, gentlemen, in view of the unpatriotic behavior
of those professed Democrats in Congress, at a most trying moment
in their country's history, I am regretfully forced to declare that
our once glorious party has degenerated, and that the only good
Democrats are dead ones.
