Summary

An emblematic illustrated cover for a piece of Millard Fillmore campaign music, composed by Frederic Southgate and copyrighted in 1856. The figure of Columbia or Liberty, surrounded by clouds and an oval frame, stands on a globe and holds a shield and American flag. She wears classical dress and a Phrygian cap. An eagle descends toward her from the clouds. Behind Columbia is a burst of light from the rising sun. At her feet is a small bouquet.
