Grant-Wilson Campaign Banner, 1868

 

This Republican campaign banner exaggerates General Grant's working class origins in an appeal for the labor vote. Although he despised working in his father's tannery in Galena, Illinois, here Grant finds a use for it, as running mate Henry Wilson does for his origins as a shoemaker in Natick, Massachusetts.
