Campaign biography of Lewis Cass, second governor of Michigan and Andrew Jackson's Secretary of War, published preceding the 1844 presidential elections. Cass would lose the Democratic nomination in 1844, and though he succeeded in gaining it in 1848, he was defeated by Mexican War hero Zachary Taylor. Interestingly, the work includes publisher's advertisements, among which are several sample pages from a new history of Mexico by Brantz Meyer.
