Democratic Party:

QUESTIONS AND FACTS.

[np: nd 1863] 8pp, caption title [as issued]. A folded folio sheet [some loosening at folds], lightly foxed and worn. Good+ or so. An anonymous anti-Lincoln pamphlet, divided into headings: Shall we have a Draft?; What are we Fighting For?; The President and his Administration; Arbitrary Arrests. Each focuses on a particular area of Lincoln atrocities: insatiable demands for troops, compulsory conscription that "completely nullifies all State laws and authority on the subject," opposition to compromise as the road to peace, the unbearable financial burdens of the War, incompetence, corruption, abuses of power, arbitrary arrests. The case of Congressman Edson Olds of Ohio, an imprisoned Copperhead, is given special attention. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 67151. Not in Monaghan, Bartlett, Nevins.
