Item # 687962
November 09, 1840
THE GLOBE, Washington, D.C., Nov. 9, 1840
* William Henry Harrison
* Presidential election victory
Perhaps there can be no better newspaper to report a Presidential election than one from the nation's capital.
Page 3 begins with: "The Election" "It becomes our duty to announce to the public that we have received returns of the elections in a sufficient number of the states to render the final result no longer doubtful. Gen. Harrison, the standard bearer of the Federal and Abolition parties, has been elected..." with much more. This report takes a full column.
Four pages, nice condition.
