[Small Broadside or Handbill]: State of Virginia. The People's Ticket. 7th November 1848. For President, Zachary Taylor, of Louisiana. For Vice-President, Millard Fillmore, of New York. Electors..
[Virginia], 1848. Fine. Political handbill. Measuring 3.75" x 6.5". A fine example. Additionally the handbill lists the electors for each of Virginia's 17 election districts. Taylor, a Southern slaveholder whose family had migrated westward from Virginia, opposed the spread of slavery to the territories and was uninterested in politics but was recruited by the Whig Party as their nominee in the 1848 presidential election. He defeated the Democratic nominee, Lewis Cass, and became the first U.S. President never to have held a previous elected office. OCLC locates only two copies, both in Virginia.
