Description: [Broadside] TO WAR DEMOCRATS AND ALL UNION MEN. [Lebanon, Ohio?: 1868]. Broadside, printed in three columns. 8.5" x 11.25". Slight edge wear, very faint horizontal crease. Very Good. ******************************* A scarce and evidently unrecorded broadside by a former employee of the Lebanon, Ohio 'Patriot'. 'The Patriot' supported the Copperhead Clement Vallandigham's bid for a Congressional seat in the 1868 elections. Leffingwell hates Vallandigham, "the ever-present, ever-incessant and unwelcome destroyer of Democratic peace and quiet" and "the most despised of all traitors." During the Civil War he used "every means to help traitors in the destruction of the Government." Supporting the rest of the Democratic ticket, headed by Seymour and Blair, Leffingwell urges his fellow Ohio Democrats to "wipe from the mind of decent existence the polluted name of Clement L. Vallandigham."
