"On Monday and Tuesday nights, Aug. 29 and 30, at the City of Chicago, a number of distinguished Democratic orators entertained the members of the Chicago Convention and others with their views of the state of the country, and expounded the Platform upon which their party then stood..."
These orators, Copperheads all, urge "open and above-board resistance to the draft." They exclaim, "You cannot conquer the South, and I pray God you never may." They damn Lincoln "to all eternity," and charge that he has "slain our people by countless thousands." They counsel, "Wipe out the emancipation proclamation."
