Title:
The whole story in a nutshell!
Title (alt.):
Harrison's ideas! : Republican platform of 1888
Cleveland's ideas! : fruits of "free-wool message," "Mills' bill" and general Democratic policy
Description:
Major differences between incumbent Democrat Grover Cleveland and his Republican rival Benjamin Harrison during the 1888 Presidential campaign are emphasized on this campaign poster. During this era of rapid industrialization, Harrison promoted himself as the candidate best suited to national and international concerns while still being aware of important issues at the state level. The map imagery highlights Harrison’s expansionist position while underscoring Cleveland’s limited appeal, particularly in states colored gray. The fact that Harrison’s party and administration worked against organized labor did not prevent him from making it a central claim in his campaign poster.
