Additional Details

Bankrupt France and a strong vigorous America are contrasted in this well-crafted print. King Louis-Philippe and President Andrew Jackson face off across the water in a dispute over the unpaid multi-million-dollar spoliation claims against France. Jackson is backed up by his patriotic citizen-soldiers, and another helpful citizen is reaching out to offer him a bag of tax money. Reilly 1836-2.
