GRAND BANNER OF THE RADICAL DEMOCRACY, FOR 1864.
   
Complete Explanation:
A campaign banner for presidential nominee John C. Fremont and his running mate John Cochrane. Fremont and Cochrane were the candidates of a faction of radical Democrats consisting mostly of Germans and abolitionists. The nominees' bust portraits appear in the center in roundels framed in oak leaves, supported by two cornucopias and surmounted by an eagle holding a shield, streamer, and arrows. The eagle appears against a field of stars and rays of light that stream from behind a dark cloud. Flanking the composition are two American flags.
