Product Description
The character of Columbia is one of the oldest symbols of the United States. She is a personification of our nation, like her "sisters" Britannia in Britain and Hibernia in Ireland. Yet most students aren't familiar with her. By teaching your students to understand what the character of Columbia represents, they will be better able to interpret political cartoons and other art as primary sources.

This PowerPoint presentation features images of Columbia from American art from the 19th-20th centuries. It includes World War I propaganda and political cartoons, some by famous political cartoonist Thomas Nash. Sources are included and most images include brief explanatory notes.
