‎Lincoln’s treatment of Gen. Grant, Mr. Lincoln’s treatment of Gen. McClellan. Taint of disunion.‎

‎Half polished calf and marbled boards, rubbed at corners and joints, spine sunned. Interior lightly soiled, otherwise a fine copy. This scarce political pamphlet was printed by the Democrats as’Document No. 12’. It consists of a correspondence between Lincoln and Grant to show Lincoln’s full support of him, a series of correspondence between Lincolnand McClellan to show how Lincoln interfered with him, and a collection of quotes to give the impression that Lincoln was sowing the seeds of disunion through his actions. The pamphlet was produced to show how McClellan’s lack of success was at the hands of Lincoln and his policies and that Lincoln was unworthy of true non - partisan leadership. An interesting anti - Lincoln item.‎
