WINFIELD SCOTT HANCOCKJust months before the 1880 presidential election, the Union general and Democratic Party candidate thanked the Hancock Veteran Association for its support Printed Document Unsigned. Despite the Veteran Association's support, Hancock lost the election. He passed away just six years later. Winfield Scott Hancock (1824-1886) was a highly successful Union general during the Civil War and a hero of the Battle of Gettysburg (1863). He became the Democratic Party's candidate for President in 1880, losing narrowly to James A. Garfield by a margin of fewer than 40,000 votes out of 9 million cast (Electoral College vote was 214-155). Hancock had impeccable Unionist credentials but was a strong advocate of states' rights, and was considered for the Party's Presidential nominations of 1868, 1872 and 1876 before securing it in 1880. His command of the Fifth Military District during the Reconstruction Era endeared him to the Democratic Party. Mailing creases. Docket notes on verso in unknown hand. Toned. Worn along edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
