    Peace Democrats of 1863: Anti-Copperhead Broadside from New Hampshire. 11.5" x 17.5" broadside, titled: "Copperheads In Council! Declarations of the Leaders. Read and Ponder What They Say!" No doubt issued for the off-year elections in New Hampshire ("Men of New-Hampshire! Will You Vote the Ticket Made Up of Such Men? Please Paste Up in a Conspicuous Place." Former doughface President Franklin Pierce, a native of the Granite State, is quoted twice. The central illustration depicts a nest of Copperheads captioned: "Knights of the Golden Circle in Secret Session ["Ed id omne genus" or "and all of their kind"). Each snake is labeled with the name of an anti-war politician. Various copperhead politicians are quoted making traitorous and outrageous statements. Normal folds. Clean and bright.
