2  Published in 1889 (during the start of the Progressive Era of U.S History.  Political Cartoon  Created by cartoonist Joseph Keepler who was known for sharing the growing power of trust.

3  The audience would have been average Americans who were not involved in trust.  The cartoon shows how trust ideas got all the way to the government (federal).

4  The POV of the cartoon is that of an American citizen looking in from the other side.  The intention is to persuade others to stay out of trust. Progressive Presidents were all about breaking up trust!

5  A political cartoon that is set in a congressional gathering.  A sign hangs over the room that says, “This is a Senate of the monopolist, by the monopolist, and for the monopolist.

6  Monopolist Trust are portrayed as bloated, almost reptilian figures standing over the US Senate.  A sign is over the “peoples entrance” that reads, “closed”.

7  Ethos: The United States senate is portrayed, which is an important part of the government, being “bullied” to vote in a “monopolist” view.  Logos: Seeing what is going on makes some people maybe stop to think, “Wait a minute.”  Pathos isn’t portrayed to a way that is visible to the viewer.
