Truth from an honest man
This pamphlet includes and letter and resolution addressed to President Lincoln from the May 19,1863 democratic meeting followed by the president's reply. The democrats' resolution covers the topic of the committee's view of the principles involved in the Vallandigham case. Clement Laird Vallandigham was an Ohio politician and leader of the Copperhead faction of anti-war Democrats during the American Civil War. In 1863, he was convicted at an Army court martial of opposing the war, and exiled to the Confederacy. In the resolution, the democratic committee denounces such action citing that it infringes on the constitutional right to freedom of speech. In his reply, President Lincoln apposes that view.
