The roots of political cartooning can be traced back at least as far as the 16th-century Protestant Reformation in Germany. In America, credit for the first such cartoon is widely given to Benjamin Franklin’s famous “Join or Die”—a depiction of a snake cut into pieces, meant to represent the fate of the American colonies should they not act together. In the 19th century, American cartoonists turned their attention to Hawai`i, publishing a variety of opinions on such events as the overthrow of Hawaiian Monarchy and annexation of the Islands by the United States.
