About this title


Political cartoons are nothing new in the world of today. They have been around since, probably, the beginning of time. In The Lines Are Drawn you will get a look at Political Cartoons from the Civil War era when anything was fair game and the fur flew.

From School Library Journal:

-A valuable collection of Northern and Southern political cartoons that effectively conveys some of the political, economic, and moral issues surrounding the war. The cartoons illustrate perfectly what is most fascinating about our Victorian predecessors: they seem so familiar to us, and yet are so foreign at the same time. A helpful foreword addresses the racist nature of many of the drawings. The cartoons are presented by the year in which they were printed, along with usually helpful explanations that shed light on allusions that may escape late 20th-century sensibilities, e.g., why Lincoln is often portrayed in Scotch-plaid capes in Southern cartoons. Northern works predominate because of the paucity of Southern publishers and resources. This sometimes amusing but more often disturbing book will add to readers' understanding of the Civil War.-Rebecca L. Wells, UMI, Alexandria, VA
