[Broadside]: Workingmen, Arouse! To the Workingmen of the City and County of Albany...

Albany, New York: [no publisher], 1867.

Price: $650.00

Unbound. Broadside. Approximately 7.25" x 10.75". Margins a little irregularly trimmed, removed from a scrapbook or backer, a bit wrinkled, and with a small marginal tear that is threatening to become a chip, a good only copy. A call to workingmen and a sworn statement from two union members that the Republican candidate for County Sheriff, I.N. Keeler, when approached to take tickets for a Printers' Union Excursion "emphatically declined to do so, and SHAKING HIS HEAD AS IF IN CONTEMPT OF THE ENTERPRISE, proclaimed that he was 'opposed to all Trades' Unions.'" The broadside urges that "It is the duty of every Mechanic and Workingman to proclaim at the Ballot Box whether any candidate for position in this County shall declare himself opposed to you and not receive a rebuke worthy of you."
