    Political Cartoon:
    “Lamb from the Slaughter”
    Treaty of Versailles Cartoon
    Library of Congress
    Political cartoonist Clifford Berryman captured one of the most contentious treaty battles in Senate history with his cartoon “The Lamb from the Slaughter.” When some senators, including Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Henry Cabot Lodge, urged President Wilson to amend the Treaty of Versailles, the president refused. Lodge then led the effort to amend the treaty through “reservations.” As depicted by Berryman, a satisfied Lodge escorted the “lamb,” a battered, bandaged peace treaty, with reservations attached, from his committee room for a vote by the full Senate.
