President Garfield and His Cabinet



by Joseph Keppler (1881)

president garfield and his cabinet (1881)


Lazy Curator™ sez: Self-explanatory, a post to go along with the already-posted depictions of Grover Cleveland’s [first] cabinet and this rather backhanded image of Benjamin Harrison’s cabinet, which is clearly just a pretext to get another dig in at James Blaine. This image, on the other hand, is as “nice” a rendering as we’ve ever had of Blaine, or ever would. Pre-dating his controversial presidential bid probably helps in that regard.

Hey looky, William Windom served in someone else’s cabinet before Harrison! Who knew? Clearly not this dummy! And yes, Robert Todd Lincoln was indeed the son of Honest Abe. He even was considered as a presidential candidate at one point (as seen in this cartoon) but alas, ’twas not to be.
