Description

1860 Political cartoon of Stephen Douglas being spanked by Columbia as another figure looks on (Brother Johnathan or early Uncle Sam?). Douglas is shown with diminutive size because of his famous shortness (which led to the nickname "The Little Giant").

Text

Uncle Sam
"That's right! Columbia, lay it on him, for he richly deserves it, give him the Stripes till he sees Stars.—"
Columbia
"You have been a bad boy Steve, ever since you had anything to do with that Nebraska Bill and have made a great deal of trouble in the family, and now I'll pay you for it.—"
Douglas
"Oh! Marm let me off this time and I'll never do so any more."
