Martin Van of Kinderhook and the 1848 Election Song for Free Soil

Martin  Van Buren, from Kinderhook New York, had a second phase of his political life after his presidency. Still a power in the Democratic party, he surprised a few people by leaving it to run on the anti-slavery Free Soil party. One of the most entertaining songs of that election, was put to the minstrel song "Dandy Jim of Caroline." 

 

The song does modify a few lyrics that are not appropriate for Youtube and general audiences. The complete lyrics can be viewed here.
