Description

This broadside announces that "the Colored people of Preble County, recognizing the blessings of Liberty, will celebrate the 18th anniversary of their deliverance from bondage" in Eaton on September 22, 1881. The noted speaker at the event was the Reverend W. F. Arnett of Nashville, Tennessee, who spoke in favor of the Republican Party. A significant topic of concern at the event was likely the assassination of Ohio-born President James A. Garfield, which occurred three days earlier.
