[Elections of 1866]:

THE RECORD OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.1860-1865.

1865 [np, nd. 1865 or 1866]. Original printed wrappers [spine shorn, moderate wear] with wrapper title and caption title [as issued]. 39 clean pages. Good+ to Very Good. It is, according to the anonymous author, a record of treason. "It is not pleasant to reflect that a powerful party, which had for nearly half a century controlled the destinies of the country, has played so base and treasonable a part in the hour of peril." There is much to support the author's assertions-- the tacit support of former President Pierce, the vacillations of President Buchanan and treasonous acts of some of his Cabinet officers, Northern disunion conventions, and many expressions of sympathy with the seceded States. The record of the Party during the War, despite the noble but "powerless" War Democrats, was a disgrace. FIRST EDITION. Bartlett 1292. LCP 8703.
