THE PLATFORMS. BALTIMORE. CHICAGO.

[New York?]: For sale by all News Agents. Price, $1 per 100, [1864]. Broadside, 9-1/4" x 12". Printed in two columns: the left column headed 'BALTIMORE' and reciting the Republican platform; the first two-thirds of the right column headed 'CHICAGO' and reciting the Democrats' platform; the rest of the right column lists 'Points of Difference.' Minor wear at a portion of the blank top margin, from prior matting on the blank verso. Near Fine.

A Republican recitation of the Democrats' Platform and the Republicans' Platform in 1864, and an analysis of their 'Points of Difference.' "The Union platform looks to the ending of the war through the defeat and overthrow of the Rebellion, while the Democratic contemplates peace through the virtual triumph of the traitors." The broadside exhorts, "Freemen of the United States! read, mark, weigh, resolve, and VOTE! This is preeminently a contest regarding important principles and measures, compared with which, personal considerations are of small account."
