British cartoons during the American Revolution
This fine electronic collection of historical British political cartoons has just come to my attention. The cartoons and sketches parody and otherwise skewer the American Revolution and its allies. This file contains more than 150 British political cartoons concerning the American Revolution. Each is accompanied by an archivist’s description.
The two sample cartoons are representative: One shows American savages hanging and scalping British loyalists; the other shows the American “don’t tread on me” rattlesnake serving the “Monsieur” a plate of frogs.
