Thomas Nast was an influential illustrator and political cartoonist known for championing causes he believed were important, such as opposing slavery and supporting voting rights.
Although Nast enjoyed immense success, he did have his detractors. One such critic was James G. Blaine who opposed municipal reform and Tweed’s corruption.
Early Life and Education
Tom and Veda enjoyed hosting large yard parties where people could gather to enjoy good food, reconnect with old acquaintances, and meet new ones. Additionally, they spent much of their time traveling in western US states and Mexico.
Thomas came to the Supreme Court with an eye toward challenging what most thought of as “settled law.” His dissent in Morales v. City of Jackson served as a stark warning about its willingness to surrender police powers to street criminals. Magnet’s prose is refreshingly free from the excessively dramatic tone often employed when explaining the Supreme Court. Rather, it displays his understanding and respect for its limitations as an historian who understands jurisprudence better.
