GRAND NATIONAL WHIG BANNER. "ONWARD."

Click for image enlargement
A Whig election banner almost identical to Currier's "Grand, National, Democratic Banner" (no. 1844-13). Currier is known to have produced at least three Whig banners for the 1844 election. This example features oval portraits, framed in laurel, of Whig presidential and vice-presidential candidates Henry Clay (left) and Theodore M. Frelinghuysen (right). "The Nation's Choice For President & Vice President" is inscribed on a banderole below the portraits. An eagle and several American flags appear in a burst of light above the portraits, as does the campaign slogan "Justice to Harry of the West."
