The Pershing “Punitive” Expedition

This political cartoon shows Pershing “pursuit” of Pancho Villa in Mexico. The cartoon is making fun at the fact that Pershing was having difficulty in finding and capturing Villa. The cartoon was published in 1916 and is part of the Cabinet of American Illustration Collection at the Library of Congress.
