NATIONAL UNION REPUBLICAN NOMINATION. FOR PRESIDENT Gen. U.S. GRANT. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, SCHUYLER COLFAX
   
Complete Explanation:
A large, color campaign poster for Grant and Colfax. Bust portraits of the two candidates are framed in ovals emblazoned with stars. Flanking them are standing allegorical figures Justice (left), blindfolded and holding scales, and Wisdom (right), wearing a helmet. At Justice's feet, near Grant's portrait, are implements of war. At Wisdom's feet are symbols of agriculture, including a sheath of wheat, a rake, and a scythe. Above, an American eagle with arrows and an olive branch alights on a pedestal from which radiate four staffs with American flags.
