Like the John Brown's Legacy assessment, this question gauges students' ability to evaluate the relevance of contextual information for determining the motivations of an author. Students must select 2 facts and explain how they shed light on the cartoon's depiction of John Peter Altgeld's pardon. Students with a strong understanding of contextualization will be able to explain how fears aroused by the Haymarket Riot, and increasing tensions during the Depression of 1893, may help explain the cartoonist's work.
