2. A quick search on Google images
(for Mexican American War cartoon) found about 158,000 entries. That would be a good place to start.

6. Not an easy one!
Just ran the request through Loc.gov (American Memory) and the Prints and Photos collection.

Nada.

Here's the link to American Memory: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/browse/ListSome.php?categor...

Did find this - a pdf file that has a lesson plan with some cartoons - a couple of good ones, too! They might be in good enough condition to copy out.

Good Luck!

9. My pleasure - really!
I teach historical research techniques - and I'm much more a digger than a synthesizer! I love finding stuff!
