Description

The cartoon is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon that depicts figures representing U.S. and Great Britain, and refers to the Trent Affair, when the U.S. Navy illegally captured two Confederate diplomats from a British ship. The reproduction print has been removed from an unidentified bound volume. However, the original work appeared in the 7 December 1861 edition of Punch, a weekly British satirical magazine established in 1841 by wood engraver Ebenezer Landells and writer Henry Mayhew.
