Ograbme, or the American Snapping Turtle Political Cartoon worksheet
Drawn after the passage of the hated Embargo Act, this 1807 political cartoon shows merchants dodging "Ograbme", which is "Embargo" spelled backwards. The cartoon is followed by 5 comprehension and critical thinking questions perfect for class discussion and a full understanding of American sentiment towards the Embargo Act.
Also separately available, a 2-3 day lesson/worksheet in the Jefferson Presidency that includes this cartoon:
