Founded in 1871, Puck was the first American humor magazine to find widespread success, to which its caricatures and cartoons were a substantial contributing factor. It was published in English and German and reached a wide audience on both sides of the political spectrum by campaigning for good government. Its satirical cartoons provide an enlightening and entertaining look into this era of American politics.
