Between the fall of 1873 and the presidential election of 1876, Thomas Nast worked on a variety of concepts and his work featured many of his most common artistic techniques. Fiscal policy, anti-Catholicism, Santa Claus, and the defense of Grant against charges of “Caesarism” all moved Nast to draw. This chapter examines each of these topics to show how widely Nast observed American culture and politics and demonstrates the extent to which his influence had grown since his first successes in the 1860s.

Keywords:   presidential election, fiscal policy, anti-Catholicism, Santa Claus, Grant, Caesarism, American culture, politics
