The Republican Party - Its History and Policy. Speech of Hon. John Sherman, of Ohio, at the Cooper Institute, in the City of New York, April 13, 1860.
by Sherman, John [Republican Party][Civil War]
None Stated. PAPERBACK. N.p., circa 1860. 8vo, unbound, 8 pp. An uncommon pamphlet outlining the Republican Party's positions on slavery just before the outbreak of the Civil War. A very good copy with light wear and some tanning at extremities. "Never an abolitionist, Sherman quickly emerged as an articulate spokesman for the moderate Republicans, those who would not interfere with slavery where it existed but who absolutely opposed the extension of slavery into the western territories. After being reelected twice, Sherman emerged as a candidate for Speaker in 1859 in a bitterly divided House of Representatives but withdrew from the contest and became chair of the Ways and Means Committee. He thus took the first step toward establishing himself as the leading Republican figure in the conduct of the nation's financial and monetary affairs over the next thirty-five years." - ANB. Sabin 80380 . Very Good. 1860. First Edition. (Inventory #: BOX2017)
