This companion piece to "Both Sides of the Question" shows the battlefield aftermath of the political contest for president. On the center-left, a wounded Seymour presents his sword-"The Lost Cause"-to the victorious Grant, who holds aloft the olive branch of peace. Outgoing president Andrew Johnson (left-front corner) is supine on the ground, having lost his crown. New York Times founder and editor Henry Raymond cries over King Andy's body. Raymond's initial strong support of Johnson gradually waned until finally the Times endorsed Grant.
