[Marcy, Daniel]: [New Hampshire]
THE RECORD OF A COPPERHEAD. HOW DANIEL MARCY HELPED THE REBELS! HIS BASE BETRAYAL OF THE STATE! [caption title]
[New Hampshire, 1876. Broadside, 24 x 18 3/4 inches. Lightly creased, else very good. Archivally matted. Daniel Marcy (1809-93) was a New Hampshire sea captain and Congressman, first elected in 1863. He ran for governor in 1874, and this broadside attacks both his voting record and his integrity, accusing him of Confederate sympathies during the Civil War, a ploy known as "waving the bloody shirt," in effect accusing the opponent of murdering the sons of voters. The large broadside, which reads at the bottom, "Post this up in a conspicuous place," details Marcy's votes in Congress, which include tabling a resolution to abolish slavery; voting against punishing guerillas; voting against the appeal of the Fugitive Slave Law, and later against amending the Constitution to abolish slavery. It also includes the text of the only speech he made in Congress, which the author has labeled "Rebel Speech." Marcy was defeated by a narrow margin in the election, losing to the Republican, Person C. Cheney. A rare and interesting piece. OCLC records only one similar item at the New Hampshire Historical Society.
Bookseller: William Reese Company - Americana [US]
