TranscriptThe Colored Men.--Henderson was
denounced as an abolitionist, while In-
gersoll was a pro-slavery democrat.
From 1834 to '50, while many of the
colored men who are now in Galesburg
were slaves, Henderson was fighting for
freedom, --while Ingersoll was fighting
for slavery. During the war, when Hen-
derson was in favor of negro suffrage,
Ingersoll was opposed to it, declaring
that there was enough ignorance and
superstition voting without the niggers.
Now these same Ingersoll's are trying to
get the colored vote. They can't do it.
