McKinley-Roosevelt - Campaign Poster

McKinley-Roosevelt Campaign Poster

This image depicts a Republican campaign poster for the 1900 US presidential election, with portraits of President William McKinley and Vice Presidential candidate Theodore Roosevelt.

The poster makes a political statement:

  • On the left side, "Gone Democratic" shows the predicted result in the US if the Republicans would lose the 1900 election:  an economic slump and Cuba shackled by Spain.
  • On the right side, "Gone Republican" shows the predicted result in the US if the Republicans would win the 1900 election:  a prosperous economy and Cuba  prospering from American influence.
