Please see the HarpWeek commentary of this cartoon below:

HarpWeek Commentary: This Thomas Nast cartoon shows Manton Marble, editor of the anti-Lincoln Peace Democrat (Copperhead) New York World, and John Van Buren (son of the eighth president) vilifying Johnson in 1864 and cozying up to him a year later. Fernando Wood, Copperhead Mayor of New York and Democratic Congressman, is between Johnson and Van Buren on the right, with Marble kneeling.
