    Democrats for William Henry Harrison Membership Certificate This 7 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of campaign ephemera is a very nice piece! It has woodcuts of eagles, a locomotive, Goddess of Agriculture, an arm and hammer, a racing sloop and William Henry Harrison. It is dated 1840 and certifies membership in the "Democratic Harrison Association of Fishkill [New York]." Although party names were not quite solidified at the time, this appears to be a group of Democratic voters who supported the Whig nominee -- especially ironic in that the Democratic nominee, Martin Van Buren, was a New York native. (New York, in fact, went for Harrison both in 1836 and 1840.) Condition is very fine, with three vertical folds and light spots of discoloration at top. Likely unique.
