ZACHARIAH CHANDLER - SIGNATURE(S) - HFSID 320787

 
ZACHARIAH CHANDLER
The Detroit Mayor and founder of the Republican Party signs as a Representative for Michigan
Signatures: "Z Chandler/Mich", in black ink, 3¼x2. Elected Mayor of Detroit in 1851, Zachariah Chandler (1813-1879) was a founder of the Republican Party (1854). He represented Michigan in the US Senate (1857-1875), emerging as one of its most radical members: highly critical of President Lincoln for not moving swiftly enough to abolish slavery. He was one of the first to call for President Johnson's impeachment. Defeated in his bid for a fourth term, Chandler joined the Grant Cabinet as Secretary of the Interior (1875-1877), working to root out corruption in the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Returned to the Senate in 1879, Chandler had Presidential ambitions, but died unexpectedly in his Chicago hotel room while preparing to deliver a speech. Signature lightly smeared, but legible. Slightly soiled. Slightly toned. Mounting residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
