Franklin Repository Campaign Broadside, 1828 October 7

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 1
From the Collection:

This broadside was published as an extra to the Franklin Repository in order to report on the results of the recent Young Men’s Administration Meeting. At that meeting, the young men agreed that as the current administration has improved the situation for agriculture and manufacturing, it should be kept in the next election. They believe that General Jackson will not support the tariff they need, and that he is unqualified to hold the office of president for a number of reasons. They support the Union, the tariff, John Quincy Adams for president, Richard Rush for vice president, and Henry Clay’s recent vindication. The proclamation ends with their support for the nominations of George Chambers, of Franklin County, and James Wilson, of Adams County, as their next representatives to congress. It is signed in type by Andrew Snively, president; William M. Fahnestock and Alexander Maclay, vice presidents; and William B. Bard and William Orr, secretaries.
