Complete HarpWeek Explanation:
This is a sheet music cover for a campaign march for Democrats Horatio Seymour and Francis P. Blair Jr. The oval bust portraits of the men are framed by oak leaves. The same New Orleans publisher (A. E. Blackmar) issued another, anti-Grant campaign print, "Let Us Have Pease, Ha Ha."
