New York City Civil War Mayor Signed Check Dated 1862

NEW YORK CITY CIVIL WAR MAYOR SIGNED CHECK DATED 1862

Tammany Hall, was the noted political committee behind the Democratic Party
of New York City based on charity & patronagederived from a
Pre - American Revolutionary association. Named after Chief Tammanend,
an intelligent and highly benevolent Delaware Indian leader.
When the Society of Tammany was formally organized in New York City
in 1789, it represented middle - class opposition to the power of the aristocratic Federalist Party.

George Opdyke ( 1805 - 1880 ) was an entrepreneur ( largest clothing
manufacturing & merchandiser in NYC ) becoming a delegate to the convention of the Free-Soil Party at Buffalo in 1848, followed by a term in the New York Assembly in 1859, he was voted in as Mayor of NYC in 1862. He was the 76th Mayor and first Republican ( ina predominantly Democratic leaning city with a large immigrant working population) and unlucky enough tobe the Mayor during the terrible 4 day Civil War Draft Riots of 1863 ( in which scores of buildings were burned and nearly120 people were murdered, including about 20 Afro - Americans ).

Featured here areoriginal checks dated1862 for various amountsand hand signed by Mayor Opdyke,with a lovely NYC vignette of an Indian ( with bow & arrow ), a sailor ( holding a sextant ) around the city seal and a three - masted schooner in the background.in very fine condition ( with punch cancel ), countersigned by the City clerk and comptroller, no two exactly alike.

Orders are usually sent 24 - 48 hours of payment
