The cartoon is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon that depicts figures representing U.S., Great Britain, and Queen Victoria, and refers the British acceptance of US apology for the Trent Affair. The reproduction print has been removed from an unidentified bound volume. However, the original work appeared in the 18 January 1862 edition of Punch, a weekly British satirical magazine established in 1841 by wood engraver Ebenezer Landells and writer Henry Mayhew.
