Election of 1856:

OLD LINE WHIGS FOR BUCHANAN & BRECKINRIDGE LETTERS FROM HON. JAMES ALFRED PEARCE, AND HON. THOMAS G. PRATT, TO THE WHIGS OF MARYLAND. SPEECHES OF HON. J.W. CRISFIELD, OF MARYLAND, AND HON. JAMES B. CLAY, OF KENTUCKY.

[Baltimore?: 1856] 16pp, double columns, disbound and lightly worn. Good+. "Old Line Whigs," descendants of the Henry Clay-Daniel Webster Party favoring a national government active in commercial affairs, had nowhere obvious to go in 1856: their own Party had been destroyed by the Sectional Crisis; the new Republican Party was, in their view, a threat to the beloved Union; and the anti-Catholic bias of the emerging American Party was disgusting to many of them. This pamphlet urges them to vote for Buchanan: his Democratic Party is the only nationwide political organization remaining: disunion will result from its defeat. Sabin 59432n. LCP 7286.
