    "Another Such Victory, and I Am Done", by Thomas Nast

    Location: 45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960
    When: Weekly on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays
    Time: 1:00 pm–4:00 pm

    With this January’s Presidential inauguration in mind Macculloch Hall Historical Museum presents more than twenty examples of presidential campaign images from the late nineteenth century with the exhibit Thomas Nast: President Maker andCampaign Breaker.  The exhibit illustrates six presidential campaigns from 1864 through 1884. 

     

    Thomas Nast (1840-1902) was America’s leading political cartoonist in the second half of the nineteenth century.  From the studio in his Morristown, NJ home, Nast popularized the symbols of the Democratic (donkey) and Republican (elephant) parties that continue more than a century later.  Nast, a staunch Republican, illustrated his views of the presidential campaigns for Harper’s Weekly.  He supported the candidate he felt would best serve the country.  The power of Nast’s pen was evident — each candidate that he supported went on to become the President of the United States.  Equally important were the scathing cartoons Nast drew of the candidates he did not support.

    During the presidential campaigns and elections of 1868 and 1872 Nast stayed true to the Republican Party and supported Ulysses S. Grant.  This helped Grant, a personal friend of Nast, to win both elections.  The exhibit features Nast’s images of Grant as well as campaign banners for Grant and one of his rivals, Horace Greeley.  Included in the exhibit is a personal letter in Grant’s hand to Thomas Nast accepting an invitation to the artist’s Morristown mansion.

     

    Thomas Nast continued to support the Republican Party in the election of 1876 and helped to elect Rutherford B. Hayes.  This election against Samuel Tilden was a fierce battle with scandals about vote tampering surrounding each man.  “Another Such Victory, and I am Done” was published in the March 24, 1877 edition of Harper’s Weekly which depicts a battered elephant to show how tough the election was for Hayes, Nast, and the entire Republican Party.  It was not until the election of 1884 that Nast temporarily broke with the Republican Party and supported the Democratic candidate Grover Cleveland.  Nast felt Cleveland would best serve the country, so he helped him to win the office.  Macculloch Hall Historical Museum holds America’s largest collection of artwork by Thomas Nast.  Museum founder W. Parsons Todd began the collection with purchases directly from the artist’s family.  With recent acquisitions, the Nast collection at the Museum numbers more than 3,500.  This topical exhibit is open during touring hours Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday afternoons from 1pm – 4pm.

     

    Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is also exhibiting some of its most popular pieces as well as many seldom-seen treasures which have been in storage. Vivid examples of the antique Oriental rug collection are on display in the museum's first floor gallery, complemented by textbook examples of fine porcelain, silver, glass and furniture collected by Museum founder, W. Parsons Todd. This is a special opportunity to see rarely-exhibited treasures from the collection in the gallery and tour the rest of the museum to see many other pieces in period room settings.  The exhibit also features some of our country’s founding heroes documents and artifacts including George Washington, Dolley Madison and others. This special exhibit is open through June 30th 2013.  “A Fine Collection” has a perimeter layout which leaves the center of the room open for a series of speakers and musical programming taking place in conjunction with the exhibit over the next several months.  Programs in conjunction with the exhibit take place with music on the first Sunday at 4:30pm and speakers on the third Sunday of the month November through June (no programs in January) Visit maccullochhall.org for full details and ticket information.

    In one of his lesser known speeches, Abraham Lincoln once quipped that band promotional bios are often as grandiose and self-congratulatory in style as they are inept in communicating the musical style of the group being promoted.

The members, Sharif Mekawy (vocals & keyboards), Harry Morris Jr. (guitar), A. Hammond Murray (bass) and Ian 'skins' Carol (drums), are committed to the joint purpose of exploring musical frontiers while remaining anchored to an honest and appealing sound. The band is in the New York/New Jersey area and is looking forward to a fun and musically efficacious 2013. So come see us!
