The caption, "Coon - ' Air you in arnest, Colonel? - Colonel Bull 'I am" Coon ' Don't fire, I'll come down'" This cartoon was inspired by the resolution of the Trent affair, a crisis that arose between the United States and Britain in November to December 1861 after the U.S.S.

Tensions between the two countries escalated until the commissioners, James M. Mason and John Slidell, were released.
