Spanish American War Drawing

This drawing shows Uncle Sam angrily raising the flag towards the star that says "Free Cuba." Underneath his outstretched hand is the sinking USS Maine and on the desk, under a sword, is a Joint Resolution of Congress. Guess what it would be a resolution for... WAR!

This original drawing expresses the angry end of restraint on the part of U.S. authorities and the public at the war's outbreak.

Once again, the two dominant causes for war intervention are depicted as Cuban freedom and the destruction of the Maine. C. G. Bush was the influential and bellicose star cartoonist of The World, which sometimes published his editorial cartoons on the front page.
