    Description

    Samuel Tilden Indiana Southern Railway Autographed Bond Samuel Tilden (1814-1886), lawyer, statesman, financier. He opposed Lincoln's election and disapproved of the Civil War. He later became Democratic candidate for president of the U.S. (1876); received about 250,000 more votes than the Republican candidate, Rutherford B. Hayes, and 184 uncontested electoral votes against 163 for Hayes, with returns from Oregon, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Florida (carrying 22 electoral votes altogether) missing and not counted; an electoral commission was created by Congress (1877) to examine and report upon the contested returns in these states; the commission reported all the states in favor of Hayes, electing him president by one electoral vote. Tilden accepted the result to avoid civil war, but always maintained that he was wrongfully deprived of the election. Does this all sound a bit familiar? (Bush/Gore?) Uncancelled 1866 bond is signed by Tilden as trustee at the back. Tilden is also noted at the front as trustee. Exceptional graphics. Several rows of coupons remain. Great for framing. A portrait is included. Choice condition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
