To Oppose and Overthrow Political Wrong

To oppose and overthrow political wrong, and corruption the people

“Have a weapon firmer set
And better than the bayonet;
A weapon that comes down as still,
As snow flakes fall upon the sod,
But executes a Freeman’s will,
As lightning does the will of God;
And from its force, nor bolts nor rocks
Can shield them — tis the ballot box.”

Bangor Daily Whig and Courier (Bangor, Maine) Aug 9, 1843
