[Baltimore? 1856]. 16pp, double columns, disbound and lightly worn. Good+.
"Old Line Whigs," descendants of the Henry Clay-Daniel Webster Party favoring a national government active in commercial affairs, had nowhere obvious to go in 1856: their own Party had been destroyed by the Sectional Crisis; the new Republican Party was, in their view, a threat to the beloved Union; and the anti-Catholic bias of the emerging American Party was disgusting to many of them.
This pamphlet urges them to vote for Buchanan: his Democratic Party is the only nationwide political organization remaining: disunion will result from its defeat.
