A set of eight identical replicas of an antique 1830s American engraving. The print celebrates President Andrew Jackson's successful receipt of reparations from the French for damages to the American Navy dating back to the Napoleonic Wars, the treaties of 1831 and 1836. The text below reads: The debilitated situation of a monarchal Government when puffed up by pride and self-importance, whose resources must be wrung from the people's hands. The difficulties to which such a State must ever be exposed. The flourishing condition of a well-formed industrious Republic. The willingness displayed by the citizen of a free State to serve his country with his blood and fortune. In a medallion below is the head of Liberty, surrounded by stars.
