Taney holds up a pillow labeled "Treasury". Martin Van Buren looks on from Jackson's right. To his right, Attorney General Benjamin F. Butler is handing Amos Kendall a piece of paper labeled "Protest to the Senate". Dialog and additional phrases appear on the print. Below the print is the quote "I have taken your brother for my model" General Jackson to Joseph Bonaparte.
