See the HarpWeek commentary of this cartoon below:

HarpWeek Commentary:   Thomas Nast used Shakespeare as the basis for a cartoon more than 100 times.   Here, in 1870, Jeff Davis as Iago is skulking outside the Senate, where his pre-war Mississippi seat is now occupied by Hiram Revels, the first black Senator, (the Moor).   The four Republican Senators (left to right) are Henry Wilson (MA), Oliver Morton (IN), Carl Shurz (MO), and Charles Sumner (MA).
