REPRODUCTION NUMBER:  LC-DIG-ppmsca-10748 (digital file from original print) RIGHTS INFORMATION:  No known restrictions on publication. SUMMARY:  Print shows Charles James Fox's martyrs during the American Revolution. On the right, Frederick, Lord North, hangs from a devil's pitchfork and wears a large stone labeled "American War" from his neck. In the center, Charles Fox apologizes for his actions, in the aftermath of the 1784 general election. The 1784 Parliamentary election was the first national election. The Fox-North coalition came under attack by George III and William Pitt the Younger. Pitt remained Prime Minister and those members of Parliament who continued to support Fox and North became known as "Fox's Martyrs" in reference to John Foxe's Book of Martyrs (1563). This satire lays the blame for the Whig's loss on the American Revolution.
