Sources Criticising the British Empire

John Bull

This is another Northern American cartoon criticising the Free Trade principles of the British who are portrayed as willing to sell anything to anyone including to the Southern States. There had recently been yet another war with China and so the Opium question was still very much a part of the popular culture of the time.
