William II, German Emperor, pushes a statue of "Frederick the Great" seated on horseback, behind a female figure labeled "'Cassandra' Stephens," who is approaching Uncle Sam sitting on the U.S. Capitol Building. "Cassandra" represents Senator John Hall Stephens, who was concerned about the German Emperor's plans to install a statue of Frederick the Great in Washington, D.C.
