Pennsylvania:

PROCEEDINGS OF THE PENNSYLVANIA DEMOCRATIC STATE CONVENTION, HELD AT HARRISBURG, MARCH 4, 1856. REPORTED BY JAMES B. SHERIDAN.

Wm. Rice, Philadelphia: 1856 90pp. Stitched but signatures loosened. Good+ to Very Good. Pennsylvania's favorite son, James Buchanan, the paradigmatic 'Northern Democrat with Southern principles,' won the Democratic nomination for the presidency a few months later. This Convention is a love-in for Buchanan and the policies of the National Democratic Party, especially its pro-South tilt in Kansas. Calling repeal of the Missouri Compromise "a work of patriotic sacrifice, in meeting the demands of sectional excitement by unshaken adherence to the fundamental law," the Convention opposes the divisive Republicans and Know-Nothings. This document prints the list of delegates, the proceedings, the speeches, and the resolutions. FIRST EDITION. LCP 3063.
