"Boosting Him Up"
During the World War I era, the U.S. experienced a “Red Scare,” or national hysteria about the dangers of communists and radicals. The Red Scare was influenced by wartime patriotism, immigration from eastern Europe, and the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, and fueled by newspaper editorials and cartoons. This cartoon by Fred Morgan links labor strikes with anarchists who want to overthrow the government.
