    Description

    Fillmore & Donelson: A Very Rare 1856 Jugate Campaign Ribbon. Jugate designs are especially prized by ribbon collectors, and this beauty is one of only several known examples. Great condition. For strictest accuracy we note two virtually unnoticeable fine partial horizontal separations at the very top, just a quarter inch below the top edge.

    The traditional Whig party fell apart in 1856. Those Whigs of an abolitionist bent supported Fremont and the new Republican Party, while Fillmore, who had previously served as president after Zachary Taylor died in office, drew his support from the nativist "Know Nothings." Democrat James Buchanan easily defeated the two candidates, who split the former Whig vote. This beautiful jugate ribbon, with its "Know Nothing" theme, is an important opportunity for any ribbon specialist or generalist collector of 19th century political Americana. Length 6".
