Photograph Description: Ornithology Related Names: Childs, J. (John) Clay, Edward Williams, 1799-1857. Date Created Published: N. York : Published by John Childs, 1852. Summary: A mild election-year cartoon portraying Whig presidential candidate Winfield Scott (left) as a turkey and Democrat Franklin Pierce (right) as a gamecock. The two face each other from opposite sides of 'Mason & Dixon's Line.' Scott orders Pierce to 'Get out the way fellow! I want the whole of the road!' Pierce crows back, 'Cock a doodle doo----ooo! Don't you wish you may get it! But you can't get over this line.' Scott's chances in the South were considered poor because of his association with antislavery interests.
