This broadside was printed by the Republican party during the presidential campaign of Benjamin Harrison and Levi P. Morton. The paper is illustrated in pale reds, whites, and blues. Striped block letters that read "OUR NATION'S CHOICE" are printed across the top; beneath this headline, oval portraits of Harrison and Morton are framed by women in Classical attire and a large arrangements of flowers, leaves, shields, and flags. Two narrow columns of text line the sides, with two wider columns of text along the bottom portion. The lower corners feature illustrations and quotes of Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant.
