    1800 Electorial Ticket, Jeffersonians for Congress This is the earliest national political item we have handled -- a small (4.5" x 3") paper flyer titled The Country Ticket. It reads, "Firm Friends to the Constitution and Liberty of the Press, but Opposers of unnecessary Land Taxes, THOMAS TILLINGHAST, JOSEPH STANTON, jun. Representatives to the 7th Congress." The printer was S. J. Williams. Note the old-fashioned typographic use of "f" as "s" in this item. The 1800 national election was bitterly fought with the Jeffersonians opposing the Federalist policies. Jefferson was eventually elected on the 36th ballot in the House of Representatives. These two candidates, by the way, were both elected from Rhode Island. Tillinghast, a former Federalist, could trace his family's roots in America back to 1645. Stanton, a colonel in the Revolutionary War, had been an Anti-Administration Senator in the First Congress.
