Uncle Sam removes his hat in reverence for what is presumed will be a "momentous time in history." This cartoon was printed alongside personal musings about the year and the decade that began on 1 January 1960, the day this cartoon ran. With unresolved political tensions internationally and diverse progressive movements domestically, many anticipated the 1960's to be the turbulent decade that it would become.
