Ulysses S. Grant's Handwritten Election Returns for Indiana During the 1868 Presidential Campaign A.D. "Grant" in the text, in pencil, 1 p., 7.75" x 9.75", n.p., Oct. 14, 1868, and identified at lower right in another hand as "Genl Grant's figuring in Indiana Election Returns, Oct. 14, 1868". Grant has listed the Indiana Counties in the first column and in columns headed "Dem" and "Rep", the number of votes cast in each county. The tally includes figures for the following counties: "Wayne 200 [Rep]", "Tippecanoe 94 [Rep]", "Derlawar[sic] 200[Dem] 90 [Rep]", "Lawrence 100 [Rep]", "Marion 150 [Rep]", "Putnam 366 [Dem]", "Champagne 22 [Rep]", "Warren 106 [Rep]", "Sulivan[sic] 193[Dem]", "Marshal 210 [Dem]", "Howard 8 [Rep]", "Porter 00 [Dem] 45[Rep]", "Huntington 132[Rep]", and "Grant 20 [Rep]". Grant lists the following total for each party: Democrats 3294 and Republicans 1002 (although the correct total is 1272).

    The Republican ticket of Grant and his running mate Schuyler Colfax of Indiana easily defeated the Democratic ticket of former New York Governor Horatio Seymour and Missourian Francis P. Blair. Grant would go on to win Indian as well as 25 other states. Despite his obvious concern in tracking votes, Grant publicly took no part in the campaign and refrained from making any promises. The top right corner has been professionally restored, otherwise near fine.
