The Democratic machine's William M. Tweed, was the target of a campaign to destroy the power of the Democrats and reform city government. The New York Times, Harper's Weekly, and Thomas Nast's cartoons were the primary weapons in the fight. This chapter describes the confrontation between Nast and Tweed, which involved Tweed's attempts to bribe Nast. Clearly, Nast's cartoons were hitting home, and Tweed hoped that he could induce Nast to abandon his crusade against the Democrats.
