[Woodward, George W.]:

WOODWARD ON FOREIGNERS.

[Philadelphia?: 1863] 8pp. Caption title [as issued]. Disbound with some loosening, light wear, Good+. A Democratic Justice of Pennsylvania's Supreme Court, Woodward ran for Governor in 1863. He had blamed the War on the Republicans, argued that no justification existed for excluding slavery from the Territories, and in 1860 had hinted that secession of the South was justified on grounds of self-defense. This anti-Woodward pamphlet attacks him by showing that, at the 1837 State Constitutional Convention, he attempted to prevent foreigners from voting or holding office in Pennsylvania. "Now that he is a candidate for office and needs the foreign vote, look out for denials and contradictions of his sentiments!" Bartlett 5959. OCLC locates 7, under two accession numbers. Not in Eberstadt, Decker, Nevins, Sabin.
