SJT Friday Fact (thanks, DM)

The political beginnings of SJT

Tilden came from a long line of Jeffersonian and Jacksonian Democrats; he grew up listening to the family talk politics. In 1832, at the age of 18, SJT wrote a paper to counter the Anti-Masonic movement that threatened the re-election of Andrew Jackson. His father was so impressed with SJT’s work he took both the paper and his son to meet Martin Van Buren, the former governor of New York who was running as Jackson’s 2nd term vice president. The Albany Argus published Tilden’s paper as a campaign article and so many people credited Van Buren as its author he eventually made a statement crediting SJT with its authorship.
