Union Bitters

by :: [Bitters]

Once a proprietary "medicine" once sold as "Seabury's Union Bitters" that would be found "grateful and comforting" in all cases where manhood needs to be restored, or where men have lost their self-respect and interest in each other's welfare. THis is pretty typical marketing for these types of "medicine" in the 1800s.

Some historical documents claim it was to be "put up in the best Bourbon Whiskey".
