Tillman - The Senatorial Brothers - Foraker
View Full Item
This illustration entitled, "Tillman - The Senatorial Brothers - Foraker", by cartoonist Clifford Berryman, which appeared in the Washington Post on January 13, 1907, depicts Joseph B. Foraker of Ohio and Benjamin Tillman of South Carolina showing their solidarity in opposition to The Senate Committee on Military Affairs investigation and subsequent agreement with President Theodore Roosevelt's ruling with regard to the rioting of black soldiers in Brownsville, Texas on August 13, 1906. These two made a strange pair as they were often on opposite sides of issues.
