General NoteCampaign circular published by the Republican Party's national committee, listing resolutions of "The Chicago platform" and "The Baltimore platform," followed by seven numbered "points of contrast." "Fellow-citizens! These are plain and practical issues: study them well ... If we surrender to the Rebellion, the Union is gone forever. If we fight the rebels a little longer, it is safe forever.

The election of Lincoln and Johnson is the death-knell of the Rebellion!!"
