Despite the success of his employment at Harper's Weekly, Thomas Nast continued to experiment with other art forms and other avenues of self-expression. This chapter discusses the political themes that began to dominate Nast's work. The election of General U. S. Grant to the presidency was one of the political campaigns that helped push Nast even more deeply towards political art.
