Beginning of the Republican Party: nomination of their first Presidential candidate...



Item # 661825

June 19, 1856

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, June 19, 1856  A very historic issue for the Republican party as it reports on their first national convention. The newly created political party held the prohibition of slavery as the principal issue of their platform.
The front page has: "Republican Convention and has a sub-head: "Second Day--The Platform" and further on notes the votes for their nominee for President, won by Colonel Fremont. Also reports on: "Nomination of Vice President"
Terrific to have such lengthy reporting on the very beginning of the Republican party in his famous newspaper from the nation's capital.
Four pages, nice condition. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
