A Supreme Court ruling legalized gay marriage from coast to coast, prompting America's political cartoonists to carry on with a grand tradition of documenting history. Andy Marlette/Pensacola News Journal

After the Supreme Court on Friday ruled gay marriage bans were unconsitutional, opening the door to gay marriage in every state, thousands of people rushed to courthouses to get married and even the most conservative states started issuing marriage licenses (though some were still fighting it).

Others celebrated by heading to the Stonewall Inn in New York City, a newly landmarked site for its role in the fight for gay rights, and to the Supreme Court itself. Meanwhile, amateur and professional cartoonists around the nation commemorated the day in their own way:
