War, Cultural Geography, Military Technology

    Shows John Bull, the allegorical figure of England, and an American military figure (possibly intended to be Abraham Lincoln), standing on separated islands (representing different continents). John Bull warns the American that unless he apologises he will 'put the matter into the hands of my lawyers Messrs. Whitworth and Armstrong'—a reference to the two most prominent British gun-makers of the period. The illustration refers to Britain's possible declaration of war on the Union states in response to perceived aggression.
