Sherman, John:

SENATOR SHERMAN'S DEFENSE, AS DELIVERED BY HIMSELF, AT SPRINGFIELD, OHIO, OCTOBER 4TH, 1865. AND PUBLISHED IN THE CINCINNATI COMMERCIAL, TOGETHER WITH A FAIR, CANDID AND IMPARTIAL REVIEW OF HIS SENATORIAL RECORD, AS REVIEWED BY THE CINCINNATI GAZETTE.

[Cincinnati?: 1865?] Caption title [as issued], folded folio leaf, untrimmed and uncut. 7, [1 blank] pp. Light margin soil, Very Good. Radical Republicans opposed Sherman's 1866 re-election bid for another term as Ohio's Senator. In this rare pamphlet he denies that he had "opposed the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. This was not true, not a word of it." He also rebuts criticism that he opposed repealing, during the War, the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act: antagonizing loyal border slave States would have hurt the Union cause. But the Cincinnati Gazette responds here that Sherman's policy required returning Negro soldiers to their masters. The Gazette condemns his behavior as insufficiently protective of the rights of white and black Americans. FIRST EDITION. Not in Sabin, Thomson, Eberstadt, Decker, LCP, NUC. OCLC 51509640 [1- Hayes Pres. Lib.] [as of April 2016].
