Description:

Black and white print with some color: blue and brown tinting. Andrew Jackson and Major Jack Downing are standing in the left foreground before the United States Bank discussing how Jackson will break its corrupt "moneypoly"[sic}. Three belled donkeys with the faces of Martin Van Buren, Francis P. Blair, and A. Weaver, are harnessed together, carrying saddles labeled " $50,000," and being led down the street by William John Duane. On the back of Blair, the lead donkey is a table globe. In the right foreground are three unidentified men expressing their strong disapproval. Dialog and additional phrases appear on the print. Lower margin of print, containing title, has been trimmed off.
