Justice. "Five More Wanted." By Thomas Nast Harper’s Weekly
In this cartoon, the personification of Justice resolutely demands the execution of those white men responsible for the murder of six black men after a race riot at Hamburg, South Carolina, in July 1876. She is bounded by the founding documents of the American republic: the Declaration of Independence (left) and the Constitution (right), with the artist emphasizing the latter’s guarantees of republican government and equal protection. In the background, wall posters name white terrorist groups in the South: the Ku Klux Klan, the White League, and the White Liners.
