Not a Ragged Mob The Inauguration of 1829; White House History (Number 15) - Photo 4

This engraving done in 1840 illustrates an Andrew Jackson-era levee. Famously, Jackson threw an inauguration party at the White House where guests refused to leave and to be lured outside the building by tubs of ice cream and whisky punch. The engraving was done by Robert Cruikshank, sometimes referred to as Isaac Robert Cruikshank
