Anne Mergen Exhibit

The Florida Historic Capitol Museum is pleased to house the traveling exhibit produced by HistoryMiami. It features the work of editorial cartoonist Anne Mergen. Since 1754, and the publishing of Benjamin Franklin’s “Join or Die” cartoon, editorial cartoons have played an integral role in our understanding of American political landscapes. Editorial cartoons have the unique ability to bring both understanding and context to a political argument and serve as highly effective tools of persuasion. Come explore the impact of Anne Mergen’s work on Florida politics.
