Complete HarpWeek Explanation:
On this Puck cover, dated the day after the 1912 presidential election, Uncle Sam crows about the victory of Woodrow Wilson. The president-elect is a chick emerging from an egg, which has finally been hatched by the Democracy hen after 20 years. Following Grover Cleveland’s election in 1892, the Democrats lost four consecutive presidential elections.
