    Union Anti-Copperhead Broadside. One page, 7.75" x 11.25", Maine; [1863]. Entitled "Rebel Terms of Peace", the broadside calls for the citizens of Maine to stand against the Copperhead movement and those who "tell you it is a very easy matter to 'compromise with our misguided Southern brethren.'"

    The broadside prints the list of Confederate conditions for peace, published by the Richmond Enquirer, in the hopes that such demands would likely outrage most Northern voters. The Republican Party rightly feared that a war-weary North might not re-elect Abraham Lincoln to a second term in November 1864. Broadsides such as this one sought to counter the growing anti-war movement.

    Condition: Flattened folds, with mat burn and further toning at the edges. Some small separations at the edges and folds. Wear and soiling at the corners and along the edges. Two small tape strips at the top and bottom edges at center.
