"THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT!"

This is one of a number of highly racist posters issued as part of a smear campaign against Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial nominee John White Geary by supporters of the Democratic candidate Hiester Clymer. Indicative of Clymer's white-supremacy platform, the posters attack postwar Republican efforts to pass a constitutional amendment giving blacks equal rights, including the right to vote. Clymer lost the election to Geary.
