Description

The cartoon is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon that depicts figures representing U.S. and Great Britain, and refers the US claim of its right to search for Confederates. The reproduction print has been removed from an unidentified bound volume. However, the original work appeared in the 21 December 1861 edition of Punch, a weekly British satirical magazine established in 1841 by wood engraver Ebenezer Landells and writer Henry Mayhew.
