Cartoon of a wounded veteran whose service enriched government coffers

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.527

Editorial cartoon, The Veteran, by George Yost Coffin, clipped from the Washington Chroncle, a 19th century US newspaper. It depicts a Civil War veteran, missing one leg, between stacks of US treasury bags filled with gold, titled "Because He Fought," next to a scene of a Jewish dealer offering to buy old paper labelled US bonds, titled "Had He Not Fought." This cartoon is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
