Title

The Map Blossoms

Description

Political cartoon by B. Ames (Blanche Ames Ames) from Woman's Journal and Suffrage News, Vol. 46, No. 21, May 22, 1915.

Uncle Sam prunes a tree marked "Liberty" growing in a pot marked "Equality." The tree blossoms into a map of the United States. Atop the map a caterpillar marked "Anti" [Anti-Suffrage] glares at Uncle Sam. A watering can marked "Justice," an insect-sprayer called "Logic," and large pruning shears marked "Education" and "Truth" rest near the base of the tree.

Caption reads: 
Uncle Sam: "Prune away Prejudice and these four States will blossom in November."
