Uncle Sam's dream of conquest and carnage - caused by reading the Jingo newspapers

Keppler, Udo J., 1872-1956
Uncle Sam lies asleep in a chair with a large eagle perched on a stand next to him. He is dreaming of conquests and annexations, asserting his "Monroe Doctrine" rights, becoming master of the seas, putting John Bull in his place, and building "formidable and invulnerable coast defenses." On the floor by the chair are jingoistic and yellow journalism newspapers.
