The Civil War era saw an explosion in the use of visual techniques in political campaigning, such as pictorial representations in torchlit parades. This chapter discusses the methods used by the political parties to win elections in the Civil War era. It describes the advent of a new branch of trade in the political campaign ephemera, which capitalized on photography and campaign devices in this period.
