Know-Nothing Party Advertisement

This 1854 Know-Nothing Party lithograph is entitled Uncle Sam's youngest son, Citizen Know Nothing and was produced by New York lithographers Sarony and Company. It features a portrait of the "ideal" American man and reflects the nativist, anti-immigrant views of the party. The image was featured in several pamphlets and flyers created to promote Know-Nothing ideas..
