- A political cartoon card with two woodcut illustrations: one depicting a black soldier asking for and receiving a bounty of $300 for service in the Union army, the other showing a one-legged white Civil War veteran asking for an extra bounty of $100, to which request the "Johnson paymaster" replies, "I am very sorry, but the President says the brave black troops must be paid first." On the verso is printed some Republican party propaganda, which poses the question: "Which is the White Man's Party?" and accuses Johnson and the Democrats of being in favor of suffrage for African-Americans.
