    Description

    1860 "New-York Tribune" - Sam Houston for President Horace Greeley founded the New-York Tribune in 1841, taking a strong moral tone in his newspaper. His main concern was the abolition of slavery and the introduction of universal suffrage. Instrumental in the formation of the Republican Party in 1856, he supported Abraham Lincoln in the 1860 election and during most of the Civil War. Here is a great issue of the semi-weekly Tribune dated August 21, 1860 with a front page article entitled "Houston Ticket." Sam Houston, then Texas Governor and a strong Unionist, was nearly nominated for president by the National Union Party at their Baltimore convention in May of 1860 and, apparently, a grassroots movement had sprung up in New York for a ticket of Sam Houston and Robert F. Stockton, a retired Navy officer. This eight-page issue is in excellent condition, 17" x 22" in size, untrimmed at the top and contains much political content and news reporting from this crucial period in American history.
