THE GREAT NORTHERN CONSPIRACY OF THE "O.S.L." ''RESISTANCE TO TYRANTS IS OBEDIENCE TO GOD."

[Philadelphia: 1864]. 15, [1 blank] pp. Stitched. Caption title [as issued]. Near Fine.

The pamphlet is a lurid exposure of the origins and activities of the Sons of Liberty, a traitorous underground society seeking to sabotage and subvert the Union from within, working hand in glove with the Democratic Party. The pamphlet warns that a Democratic victory in the upcoming November presidential and Congressional elections would be a disaster. "The danger of the future lies in the cooperation of the 'O.S.L.' with the Democratic party. The former is contained within the latter, and though the organizations may as yet be independent, still there is ample proof that they are working in harmony with each other, and that there is a perfect understanding between their respective leaders."
With Northern success at Atlanta, O.S.L's only hope is a violent uprising which would result in Lincoln's assassination: that is exactly what OSL is plotting.
