Description

The cartoon is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon that depicts a rush of U.S. citizens towards Canada in response to British sympathy for the Confederate cause. The reproduction print has been removed from an unidentified bound volume. However, the original work appeared in the 17 August 1861 edition of Punch, a weekly British satirical magazine established in 1841 by wood engraver Ebenezer Landells and writer Henry Mayhew.
