THE TIPPECANOE OR LOG CABIN QUICK STEP.
   
Complete Explanation:
An illustrated sheet music cover for a melody composed by Henry Schmidt and dedicated to Whig presidential candidate William Henry Harrison. A wreath of entwined branches, between which appear the seals of the states, is surmounted by a bust portrait of Harrison flanked by an arrangement of flags and cannon. The wreath enframes a rural scene, supposedly of the candidate's home on the North Bend of the Ohio River. Harrison stands outside the two-story log house, hailing a visitor who holds a sign "Harrison Our President." Nearby are a tethered horse, covered wagon, ox cart, and farm implements. A woman stands in the open door of the cabin.
