1864 Election Poster

Gateway Pundit posted this 1864 Campaign poster from the Democrats titled "compromise with the South" Gateway pundit has more discussion on it here.

The only problem between the comparison from 1864 and today is that there was a lot more to despair about in 1864.

It's not surprising the north and the south, Republicans and Democrats, had different points of view: they were fighting each other. Not the name-calling we enjoy today, but muskets, bayonets, setting each other's houses on fire. You know, a war.

Republicans and Democrats were not fighting each other in the north. If you remember, the 1864 democratic nominee was George McClellan former commanding General of the Army of the Potomic.
