[Concord: 1848]. Elephant folio broadsheet, printed in seven columns on recto and verso. 19-1/2" x 26-1/2". Old folds, Very Good, with illustration of a sailing vessel, "Ship New Hampshire", flying the flags "No More Slave Territory", and "One Country, One Constitution, One Destiny." Illustration of Nathaniel S. Berry, "the man who is to be the next Governor of New Hampshire."
Berry was an early defector from the Democratic Party; he ran unsuccessfully for Governor as a Free Soil man in 1848 [this broadsheet calls it the "Republican Ticket"]. This enormous, rare broadsheet recounts the failure of each major Party to stem the advancing tide of Slavery. Berry and his supporters oppose the War with Mexico as a land-grab for Slavery. "The stillness of death seems to pervade the democratic party in every part of the State. ARE WE NOT SLEEPING ON A VOLCANO?... The game of Hunkerism and Slavery is up."
