[Richmond? 1860]. Pale blue broadside, 3-1/2" x 6-1/4". Various type fonts and styles. Light soil. Very Good. Contemporary signature in ink on blank verso, which is difficult to decipher but appears to be 'C.S. Fleming.'

The Constitutional Union Party was a last-ditch effort to save the Union. The sole plank in its Platform was a promise to preserve the Union and enforce the laws. This rare ticket lists electors from each of the fifteen Virginia electoral districts.
