The Friends of Lincoln, Johnson, Union and victory, in the Fifteenth Ward, to our soldier-brothers in the Army, greeting: : "The time has come!" You have been defending the flag of the free with bayonet and bullet. You are now called upon to ballot-down this bloody rebellion, which has torn you from your homes and entailed upon the whole country war and desolation. ... We send you, enclosed, the electoral ticket which in voting represents the flag. ... / Samuel Daniels, George F. Gordon, Edward Gideon, committee.
