A facsimile of an ornate cloth banner for Liberal Republican candidates Horace Greeley and Benjamin Gratz Brown. At the top of the banner, which is suspended from a crossbar, is an eagle holding a streamer inscribed with mottoes of the campaign: "Liberty, Equality and Fraternity, Universal Amnesty and Impartial Suffrage." Below is Columbia or Liberty, wearing a Phrygian cap and holding an American flag and cornucopia. She stands on a shore with a steamship in the distance. At her feet are symbols of Agriculture, Commerce, and the Arts--a plough, threshed wheat, an anchor, and a column. In the banner's center are bust portraits of the two candidates.
