Thomas Nast, America's Greatest Political Cartoonist PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Thomas Nast, America's Greatest Political Cartoonist free pdf Nash is famed as the political cartoonist who brought down the corrupt Tammany Hall Ring and William M. Tweed. Few know of his career as a lecturer, illustrator of books, especially children's, portrait painter, and news correspondent and illustrator who was witness to John Brown's trial and execution, to Garibaldi's campaign in Italy, and to some battles during the Civil War. All in all, a great deal has been written about Nast, much of which cannot be corroborated due to lack of references and other documentation. In addition, many of the individuals and situations Nast dealt with were well known in his time, but now have been forgotten by everyone except specialists. Williams attempts to address the latter problem in this volume by setting some of Nast's cartoons in the context of their time. But the author also notes that Nast was, for most of his career an employee of Harper's Weekly, who, for the most part, agreed with their positions and with those of the Republican Party of his time.
