Failed Coffee Party Colleen
SJTF Fact (Thanks, DM)
The following picture is a great illustration of Tilden’s situation. He was a Democrat with decades of strong Party affiliation (Democrats ruled the South in those days) but spent his entire life in the North and maintained many Union sympathies. In order to win, not just the party nomination but the presidential election, SJT had to find a middle ground amongst a still fractured Union and an occupied South.
It has also been said that Tilden didn’t fight for the disputed electoral votes – he spent over a month preparing a complete history on how Congress has been responsible for vote counts, not the President of the Senate, instead of trying to manipulate the politicians involved in the selection process. Thomas Nast, the artist (who drew many anti-Tilden pictures for “Harper’s Weekly”), portrayed Tilden as a weak and scared man, unable to stand up to either faction.
