    Description

    Horatio Seymour: CDV of Tammany Hall Convention. The Democrats held their national nominating convention on July 4, 1868 at Tammany Hall. The delegates nominated the Copperhead former Governor of New York, Horatio Seymour, who reluctantly accepted the honor. This rare carte-de-visite shows the outside of the hall, festooned with flags along with a floral arch with a portrait of Thomas Jefferson. People enter the building while others mill about outside. It is identified on the back: "Tammany Hall 4th July 1868". Next to the 1860 Republican convention in Chicago, it is the earliest photograph of a national convention.
