La Follette and the Progressive Era
Cartoons in Sunday comic strips make us laugh. Political cartoons in the front section of the newspaper challenge us to think. By using political cartoons focused on La Follette, students can broaden their understanding of Wisconsin's role in the Progressive Era.
