Irish Discrimination

Description

These two political cartoons depict the chaos, violence, and unruliness associated with the Irish during the St. Patrick's Day celebrations. They are best viewed in contrast to later images and articles about the St. Patrick's Day celebrations in the early 20th Century; later representations invoke a celebratory and ordered mood.
