The Wyoming Tribune for January 3, 1917. Things getting worse with Carranza?
Things didn't seem to be going well with the negotiations with Mexico at all.
The cartoon must have seemed to be the case to quite a few at the time, as Villa seemed quite resurgent. But in reality Carranza was simply insistent on Mexican sovereignty. He was dealing with two major contests to his administration at the same time, which was pretty risky, but in retrospect, he did it pretty well.
