Using the questions and method discussed in this tutorial, analyze the political cartoons in the following three exercises and then answer the questions listed below them. The exercises have supplementary documents provided to help you with your analysis. Once you have examined all of the cartoons compare them to see if you can find reoccuring ideas and images. What do the cartoons collectively say about the difranchisement movement in North Carolina in 1900? Feel free to perform outside research if you have addtional questions.
