“Interruption of the Ceremony” I chose a cartoon “Interrupting the Ceremony” by John T. McCutcheon. This cartoon was created when United States was involved in the World War I. Specifically it was created in 1920 when the war was resolved and President Woodrow Wilson came up with a peace treaty called “14 Points”. This cartoon was specifically intended for the everyday people of United States including all races, because it shows everyone that United States did not want to get involved in foreign affairs and possibly explaining to people why America chose to stay away from Europe’s entanglements. This cartoon was created after the World War I, which was the deadliest war at the time.
