A satirical representation of the Hartford Convention, with Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut preparing to "jump" into secession.

This cartoon is an attack on the Hartford Convention, portraying not only a desire of the three states to secede, but to even join Britain.  The ribbon at the bottom names multiple war heroes from the War of 1812, symbolizing how the convention is abandoning and disrespecting those who toiled for their freedom, further emphasizing the anti-patriotism found within the convention.
