Written by a fiercely partisan East Tennessee newspaper editor, this fiery electioneering tract includes an eighty-page campaign biography of Henry Clay, the Whig candidate for president in 1844, and a twenty-page rejoinder to personal criticism and attack in "an appendix personal to the author." Whig stands on the Bank, tariff, and internal improvements are praised and opponents vilified. Chapters on Tennessee politics and random political statistics complete this interesting work.
