Caricature of gubernatorial candidate George C. Gorham bearing a Black, a Chinese, and an Indian man on his back. Uncle Sam is at left, and another figure with a monkey stands at right. Each figure makes a statement relating to issues of racial equality, citizenship, suffrage, and Gorham's views. George C. Gorham, Union Party candidate for governor of California in 1867, was "...the only one that had the honesty and at the same time the imprudence to express himself opposed to the anti-Chinese movement, and had in consequence lost many votes and impaired his future political prospects...." [cf Hittell, Theodore H. History of California. 1897. v.4, p.405.]
