Here we would like to thank everyone who made this project possible.

Thanks to Director Scott Harris, Curator Jarod Kearny, and the James Monroe Museum and Memorial Library for giving us the opportunity to work with this amazing collection. When speaking with Jarod about our project, he remarked "It's a wonderful little mystery that is being fantastically solved by this group."

We would like to give our eternal gratitude to the Digital Teaching and Learning Technologies Department of the University of Mary Washington, in particular Jim Groom and Martha Burtis.

Thanks to Paige Gibbons, Bowely Scholar and Intern of the James Monroe Museum, for photographing the collection. She had this to say about her experiences with the collection, "It's a strange collection and it was tedious to photograph, but I'm glad that someone is finally displaying these unique cartoons."

A special thanks to Professors Ferrell and Blakemore for their efforts in helping decode the meanings of many of these cartoons.

Finally, we would like to thank Dr. McClurken for facilitating our work and opening our eyes to the complexities, the tools and the idea of Digital Humanties.
