Product Description
Thanksgiving Cartoon Analysis for Reconstruction & the Civil War

This worksheet features Thomas Nast's Reconstruction-era cartoon "Uncle Sam's Thanksgiving Dinner", and introduction that explains the setting and background, and 10 analysis questions students answer.

Nast's cartoon was published in November, 1869 and was intended to support the 15th Amendment to the Constitution and promote equality and universal suffrage. It is a wonderful image of an ideal America that still resonates today.

The questions have students think critically about the image and the time period and are a good mix of simple to more complex. An answer key is provided as well.

See here, for an excellent complementary PowerPoint Lesson on Reconstruction that works well with this cartoon as homework.
