Daniel O’Connell and the Committee of the Irish Repeal Association of Cincinnati.
Union Pamphlets 35: “Numerous of the rioters against the draft in the summer of 1863 were Irish laborers, hostile to the war and to the cause of the emancipation of the slaves. As a device to enlist their support…” the Catholic Telegraph reprinted this admonishment from Irish Patriot Daniel O’Connell (1775–1847), from twenty years prior that had been sent to the pro-slavery Cincinnati Irish Repeal Association.
Firmly liberal, O’Connell had been a commanding figure in the battle for Catholic emancipation and was a great defender of Irish Rights. (Freidel p795)
An ephemeral pamphlet, and propaganda device; rare to commerce.
