Boston - Freedom Trail: Old City Hall - Donkey statue
.
This statue of a donkey, signifying the Democratic Party, is located in the courtyard of Boston's Old City Hall. In front of the donkey are two bronze footprints "stand in opposition". In 1828, Andrew Jackson established the Democratic party and ran for president using the populist slogan, "Let the people rule." His opponents thought him silly and labeled him a "jackass". Jackson, however, picked up on their name calling and turned it to his own advantage by using the donkey on his campaign posters. Over the years this donkey had become the accepted symbol of the Democratic party.
