Keys to History

The Conservative reaction having now unquestionably set in, the "Mail" boldly challenged the Government to dissolve the House and appeal to the country. (Excerpt from: Bengough, John Wilson. A Caricature History of Canadian Politics: Events from the Union of 1841, as Illustrated by Cartoons from "Grip", and Various Other Sources. Toronto: The Grip Printing and Publishing Co, 1886.)

Cartoon originally published in Grip, May 19th, 1877
