“Yankee Doodle Upset,” drawing etched by British Lieutenant Elliot onto a window pane at a house in Castine, Maine after the town was captured by the British during the War of 1812. The drawing mocks America’s hostility towards the British and depicts the British flag above the American flag. The image was later published in the Pictorial Field-Book of the War of 1812 in 1869 after the author of the book saw the drawing still on the window pane in 1860.
