Civil War Political Cartoons
Civil War Cartoons / Civil War Politics
Civil War Political Cartoons tell a story from a perspective that is purely biased based on the authors viewpoints. They often target heads of state, politicians and generals and their satirical perspectives know few boundaries.
There were no shortage of characters to focus on in the Civil War and many of them participated in the Battle of Gettysburg such as General Daniel Sickles and General JEB Stuart.
Politicians were an easy target and Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis and even the fictitious Uncle Sam were readily picked on.
