Some of the Campaign Posters in My Office — List Six

These ones I haven't actually hung on the wall yet.
  1. Author, rapist, fugitive and Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver ran for president in 1968 on the ticket of the Peace and Freedom Party.
    A very long and complicated life that's worth reading about.
  2. General William Scott Hancock was the Democratic nominee in 1880, losing to Rep. James Garfield, R-Ohio.
    Hancock served with distinction in the Mexican-American War and as a Union general in the American Civil War. Nicknamed "Hancock the Superb."
  3. I can find very little information about James B. Walker of Illinois.
    He ran for president in 1876 on the American National Party ticket.
  4. New York Democratic Governor Samuel Tilden won more popular votes than Republican Rutherford B. Hayes, but not more electoral ones.
  5. Sen. Storm Thurmond, D-SC, the pro-segregation States Rights Democratic Party candidate, received 2.4% of the popular vote and 39 electoral votes in 1948
    I've gone back and forth on adding this to the collection since it's such a horrific part of our history, but it's a part we must remember and tbh most of the pols on the posters on my walls stood for some pretty awful and backward things.
