Guiding Questions:

What is the context? To what event or issue does the cartoon refer? What "story" does the cartoon tell?

Who is the audience?

Identify villains, victims, or heroes.

How does the artist use imagery, symbolism, stereotypes, or emotional appeals to persuade the viewer of the opinion presented?

By treating the cartoons as evidence, what do we historians learn about the Populists?

In your presentation, please present a coherent statement about the cartoon rather than simply listing the answers to the questions. The questions are meant to guide your thinking.
