Title

American Republican Manifesto Broadside, circa 1850

Description

This broadside linked the American Revolution's result, "INDEPENDENCE OF FOREIGN NATIONS", to the 1850s "danger of foreign influence" they believed was posed by immigration of Germans and Irish. This threat was magnified by the "most gross and outrageous frauds...committed under our present Naturalization system." Once naturalized, adult white male immigrants could vote.
