Additional Details

We expect the topic of immigration to remain timely through at least the presidential election. In the 1904 cartoon, an American laborer begs Uncle Sam to fix the wall at our nation's border, as hordes of dangerous-looking European immigrants climb through or over. In the second, Lady Columbia whips the "anarchist brood" from our shores, as they flee onto a ship back to Europe.
