Large political meeting in favor of the Union held in Maysville, Kentucky

Mason County, Kentucky, 1857
01/03/1860
With the sectional crisis increasingly engaging the state, large meetings were held in Kentucky aiming to demonstrate citizen's loyalty to the Union and to plead for a political solution that would preserve it.  The first of these was held at the court-house in Maysville, Mason county, in northern Kentucky and on the border with Ohio.  (By John Osborne)
