Description This is a political caricature related to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 or the Paris Commune of 1871.
Caption Caption: English translation: "Are we going in the right direction?, Badinguet shouts to the man who holds the reins. –Be calm master, I know my job, and my two beasts are good without seeming to. You know what they are capable of and me too. –Ea, Leboeuf! Ea, Frossard! You will see how we advance. –Badinguet is reassured and the others follow his example. Oh! That their confidence may be well placed. Despite his supposed knowledge, the driver loses his head; he is soon embroiled in a tight spot, from which the nags cannot get out, the chariot poured into the mud at the gates of Sedan!"
