The British and Their Worthy Allies

Late 1770s

This cartoon shows the British working with the Indians to defeat the American Revolutionary soldiers. The scalped men are Americans. As the Indians hand their scalps to the British officer, he says, "Bring me the scalps and the King [your master?] will reward you." The title reads, "[Two illegible words] the FRONTIER as proclamed by the [HUMANE?] BRITISH and their WORTHY ALLIES." |
