Title

"The Paroquet of the Wh--E Ho--e"

Subject

Reconstruction, Impeachment, Andrew Johnson

Description

This additional cartoon from Harper’s Weekly from 1868 slams Johnson by referring to him as a ‘paroquet’ stuck on repeating ‘Constitution’ over and over and over again. The reluctance to work with Reconstructionists by inciting the Constitution over and over again would lead to Johnson’s impeachment.
