1864 Lincoln Camp Re-election Broadside
New York, NY 1864 - Broadside, [1864], "Who Shall Be Vice-President? / Shall He Be A Loyal Or A Disloyal Man?" The National Union Executive Committee, Astor House, New York, N.Y., 1 p., 9 x 11 1/2 in. This campaign broadside outlines the political views and compares the public records of George H. Pendleton of Ohio and Andrew Johnson of Tennessee. Excerpt "Past experience shows that the choice of Vice-President of the United States is almost as important as that of President. In case the latter dies or becomes unable to perform the duties of his office, they devolve upon the former. In 1840 General Harrison was elected President and John Tyler Vice-President. Within two months after the Inauguration General Harrison died, and John Tyler became President of the United States, and completely reversed the policy he had been chosen to carry out. In 1848 General Taylor, the hero of Buena Vista, was elected President, and Millard Fillmore Vice-President."Clearly, a vote for McClellan was an endorsement of Pendleton's traitorous activities.
