Description[Abraham Lincoln] Broadside: "How shall Soldiers Vote?" One page, 12" x 19.25", , New York, attacking the Democratic Party as the party which was attempting to drive Union soldiers "home in disgrace from the field of battle." Toned with complete separation at center horizontal fold; chips and uneven toning along bottom margin; weakness at folds, else very good.
In part: "Soldiers of the Union Army! . . . You may now decide whether you will sustain the party that sustained you, or the party that labored with all its power to defeat you and drive you home in disgrace from the field of battle. . . . The time has come for the brave men of the Army and Navy to stand by the men who have stood by them. Let the ballot-box show that the soldiers can vote for those who voted for them, and that the party who refused to let soldiers in the army vote are not worthy of their ballots now."
The broadside uses various quotes from Democratic Party members to try to convince Union soldiers to vote for Abraham Lincoln's Republican Party. Published by the "New York Sate Central Committee of the 'Boys in Blue.'"
