GRAND NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC BANNER.
   
Complete Explanation:
A campaign banner for Democratic candidates Samuel J. Tilden and Thomas A. Hendricks, almost identical to Currier & Ives's "Grand National Republican Banner" (no. 1876-1.) The Tilden-Hendricks banner, however, stresses their campaign theme of federal reform. Above the candidates' portraits appears the figure of Liberty, holding a flag "Reform" and pointing toward the right. Visible behind her is the "Ship of State" with billowing sails. Near the rock on which Liberty stands are a small eagle and a book.
