Between 1871 and 1873, Nast demonstrated the power of his art as his work became much more focused on national politics. This chapter discusses how Thomas Nast became the most famous political cartoonist in America in 1872 when he leapt from the tussel with William M. Tweed straight into national politics, building an unassailable reputation for political cartooning.
