Complete HarpWeek Explanation:
This post-election cartoon pictures Uncle Sam and Columbia at Thanksgiving. The traditional turkey that she removes from the oven is labeled with the economic blessings that will ensue from the Republican victory in the 1896 election; in all, protection of the gold standard and a return of national prosperity.
