Fascinating 1868Republican document in which Treasury Department tables are culled to prove the anonymous author's thesis of a "Great Democratic Rebellion" in which it's maintained that "the rebellion was begun for the express purpose of overthrowing Republican Institutions, and establishing upon their ruins a Slaveholding Oligarchy; and, that all the burdens of national taxation, past, present and prospective, are the necessary consequences of the Democratic rebellion." The author's conspiracy charges are vast and sweeping and complex -- but his solution is simple: Vote Republican! First edition. Not in Sabin.
