I would like to suggest this fun thread. Here you have to express your views of the Civil War and the characters involved with contemporary cartoons only. Contemporary meaningonly political type cartoons created from the antebellum period through reconstruction. Insert an image or provide a link. Just make sure they work please. Try not to elaborate much. Let the cartoons speak for themselves. I'll start with a cartoon from a London newspaper...
Ok, the first two if you haven't figured it out are supposed to be about the Mason Slidell Affair, I'd say better known today as the Trent Affair. The third caption reads
A Glimpse into the Future.- JOHN BULL'S Distinguished Reception of his New Friends.
Well you had said in the original post to try not elaborating too much and let the cartoons speak for themselves, Savez. Tried the only elaboration I did being to tell where I got the first three and the date they appeared then had to elaborate a little more, particulary on the third one. Gonna try it again with these, only not going to post links this time and see what you guys think. These are from the February 9, 1861 issue of Harper's Weekly. Same website I got the last three.

I guess I should have said you could elaborate some. haha. My point was I didn't want it to become a debate of words just cartoons. Explaining the cartoon is perfectly fine. Sorry haha!
That last one is great!
