Describe the whole Boss Tweed story and what went down.
Boss Tweed had a strong political machine known as Tammany Hall. He used lies and patronage to work his way up into higher power in government. Thomas Nast saw him as evil and with bad intentions. Boss Tweed was power hungry and made things worse, but Thomas Nast drew political cartoons to show everyone, including immigrants, what Tweed was doing. Tweed lost his power and laws were passed that stop political machines like Tammany Hall from forming again.
