“Polk, The Young Hickory. Dallas And Victory”

A lovely full color lithograph for the 1844 presidential campaign of James K. Polk and George M. Dallas by famed lithographer Nathaniel Currier. The lithograph features two laurel-wreathed, oval portraits of Polk (left) and Dallas (right). The print imitates the hanging drapes and tassels of cloth banners, aspiring to a “trompe l’oeil” effect. In the center, above the portraits, appear an eagle and several American flags. Below the portraits are acanthus cornucopias similar to those in the “Grand National Whig Prize Banner Badge.”

The campaign slogan “Polk, The Young Hickory. Dallas And Victory” appears in a rising sun above the eagle. Judging from its copyright this Democratic banner was not deposited for copyright until June 26, after that party’s late-May national convention. Polk and Dallas went on to win a narrow popular vote victory over the Whig ticket of Henry Clay and Theodore Frelinghuysen but did far better in the electoral vote.
