Democratic Platform 1864 - Might Sound Familiar

I was doing some research for a project involving the Civil War when I came across the well known Thomas Nast illustration for Harper's Weekly entitled "The Chicago Platform" which was the Democratic platform for the 1864 election. It is totally amazing! Senator Reid and Congresswoman Pelosi Could have written it!

It is headed "Chicago Platform" and sub-headed "Union Failures."

No, I am NOT kidding you!

Please visit the Harper's web site to see a full size complete image of this illustration ... you won't regret it!
