    Description

    Adams & Jackson: "Hopeful" Newspaper Broadside/Ballot From 1824. Intriguing display ad from "The Clarion, or Bristol County [R.I.] Advertiser" of May 15, 1824. The choice of Vice-Presidential candidates was still unsettled in 1824 and did not become standardized until 1828. Grassroots organizations often sent up trial balloons offering "dream tickets". Here, the electors of Rhode Island favorable to Adams suggest Jackson as an ideal and most-worthy running mate. They see this as a preemptive maneuver against the stratagems of the Crawford faction. Great content. In 1828, Adams supporters would not be speaking so kindly of Jackson. Measures 6" x 18" folded.
