The broadside features a large illustration of Young Democrat, led by a well-dressed man wearing a top hat. The broadside advertises that "The elegant Horse, Young Democrat, will stand to cover mares" in June 1834. Details of the assignations are printed. Young Democrat is a "beautiful dapple grey, 4 years old this grass, full 16 hands high, and is well calculated for either Saddle or harness. His sire was the full blooded horse Democrat, and his dam a first rate mare."
The text's references to Culbertson's Mill and Brookfield suggest an Ohio printing, in the Fredericktown area, for this broadside. Fredericktown is in Knox County, in north central Ohio. It was named after Frederick, Maryland, birthplace of the first settler, according to Wikipedia. Item #39010
