TO THE VOTERS OF TUSCALOOSA COUNTY.

[Tuscaloosa? 1870s-1880s]. Broadsheet, 5 1/2" x 8". [2] pp. Light wear, a few short edge chips, Good+.

A rare, evidently unrecorded broadsheet reflecting post-Reconstruction Democratic Party strife in Alabama. Dodson prints a letter circulated by James R. Maxwell in which, charges Dodson, Maxwell "is attempting to make himself the 'Boss Man' of the county of Tuscaloosa, and order about the voters at his own pleasure." Maxwell's letter urged Democrats to rally round the candidacy of Col. Clements for the Legislature, in order to "show to the caucus in the Legislature that we were Democrats two years ago and are Democrats now." Maxwell accused "the Ring" of seeking to thwart that worthy goal. Dodson says it is Maxwell himself who is guilty of "Bossism."
