At center, young women watch a football game. Surrounding vignettes depict William McKinley as triumphant in Ohio, "New Jersey" cleaning up gambling and horse racing, an unidentified man, possibly Whitelaw Reid, eating crow with his turkey, John Y. McKane hiding in a hollow tree labeled "Gravesend" with a dog labeled "Newton" on a chain, families with baby carriages in Brooklyn under Mayor Charles A. "Schieren," David B. "Hill" in bed nursing a big-head, a tea party in Massachusetts, and Uncle Sam enjoying the Christmas issue of Puck magazine. Poetry accompanies each vignette, describing everything for which Americans ought to be thankful.
