Illustration: An 1840 Whig campaign print showing William
Henry Harrison greeting a wounded veteran.  The cabin flies an
American flag with the words "Harrison and Tyler."  The
caption reads:  "This log cabin was the first building erected
on the North Bend of the beautiful Ohio River, with the barrel of
cider outside and the door always open to the traveler.  The
wounded soldier is one of Gen. Harrison's comrades meeting
him after his celebrated victory at Tippecanoe, and not only
does the brave hero give his comrade a hearty welcome, but
his dog recognizes him as an old acquaintance and repeats
the welcome by a cordial shake of his tail.  If the looker-on will
only watch close enough and the picture is held due east and
west, he can feel the power of the magnetic attraction of the
Great West."  (A reference to Harrison's support in the
western part of the country.)
