NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC BANNER OF VICTORY, 1868.
   
Complete Explanation:
A campaign banner for Democratic presidential candidate Horatio Seymour and running mate Francis Preston Blair, Jr., of Missouri. Above the curiously overlapping portraits of the candidates is a globe, on which rests an American eagle holding a streamer in his beak. From behind the globe are rays of light and two American flags. Liberty, in a Phrygian cap, stands at left and Justice, holding her sword and scales, at right.

Below the portraits are two medallions. One contains an image of two hands pushing a plough. The other contains an arm-and-hammer device, symbol of Labor.
