[Washington? 1876]. 8pp, caption title [as issued], printed in double columns, disbound. Good+.
A Republican campaign pamphlet praising Reconstruction and denouncing the South's "pernicious heresies," particularly those of Calhoun, Jefferson Davis, Slidell, and Yancey. The Confederate "was indoctrinated with a measure of political poison which the fire of battle intensified and consecrated rather than destroyed." Southerners have never given up "the Lost Cause." To entrust them and their supporters with the reins of government would amount to "compensation for past treason."
