[Fredonia, N.Y.? 1862]. Folio broadside, 13-3/4" x 20-1/2". Printed in a variety of bold type fonts and settings. Blank corners chipped or worn from prior mounting, Very Good.

Horatio Seymour, a New York Democrat before the War in the Stephen A. Douglas mold, ran for Governor of New York in 1862. He abandoned Douglas's dying admonition to crush the rebellion; instead, he opposed Lincoln's draft, the Emancipation Proclamation, and other policies denounced in this evidently unrecorded broadside.
An eleven-member Committee of Arrangements invites Democrats to convene at Hull's Hall in Forestville for an Address by Wm. A. Barden of Fredonia. Seymour narrowly won his election, but his Party was repudiated at the polls in 1863 and 1864.
