1844. A colored lithograph depicting the 1844 Whig presidential party ticket: Henry Clay (left) for president and Theodore M. Frelinghuysen (right) for vice president. An eagle holds an American flag in its beak as it hovers above the two candidates who are framed in laurel. Their campaign slogan is inscribed above them, ""Justice to Harry of the West," thereby comparing Clay with the Whigs' last successful candidate, William Henry Harrison. This type of lithograph featured a double portrait of presidential running mates that was designed to evoke a large banner that might be carried in a political parade.
