DOCUMENT NO. 18. REPUBLICAN OPINIONS ABOUT LINCOLN.

[np. 1864]. Caption title, as issued. 16pp, printed in two columns per page. Stitched, widely scattered foxing, Very Good.

This unusual item, a Democratic Party campaign pamphlet, is a compendium of "Derogatory Republican statements concerning Lincoln's capacity, compiled for the campaign of 1864. The Pomeroy circular, Fremont's letter of acceptance, the Wade-Davis manifesto" [Monaghan]. It is a forceful reminder of the low esteem in which Lincoln was held during 1864, until Atlanta fell to the Union in September.
