It soon became apparent that the outcome of the president election was undecided because voting results were disputed in the three Southern states of Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina. Both parties sent officials to those states to prevent the other party from committing (more) fraud and to ensure that their party won. Cartoonist Thomas Nast, a Republican, lampoons the Democrats sending their partisans south in Go South, Young Man. The cartoons title is a play on the advice associated with the late Horace Greeley, editor of the New York Tribune and 1872 Democratic/Liberal Republican presidential nominee, to Go West, young man.
