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.
