IS THE WAR A FAILURE? THE CHICAGO CONVENTION DECLARED THAT THE WAR AGAINST THE REBELLION HAD PROVED A FAILURE...

New York: Published by the National Union Executive Committee, Astor House, [1864]. Broadside, 8-3/4" x 11-1/4". Light wear and a bit of foxing. Very Good.

This scarce broadside rebuts Copperhead claims that the War is a disastrous mistake, requiring that "immediate efforts be made for a cessation of hostilities." Issued during the critical 1864 presidential campaign, it quotes Generals Grant, Sherman, Seymour, and Dix, who make clear that the Rebels are on their last legs. In fact, "The rebel cause is fast failing from exhaustion." Grant reports, "The rebels now have in their ranks their last man. The little boys and old men" are filling the ranks.
"Does this look as if the war had been a FAILURE?"
