United States Gubernatorial Elections, 1776-1860: The Official Results by State and County

Front Cover
McFarland, 2003 - Political Science - 300 pages
This major reference work provides complete returns for the gubernatorial elections by state and county for the period 1776 to 1860. This information is nowhere else available in one volume, and much of it has been pieced together through years of research of original sources of many kinds. One section contains the statewide returns by year. The next section, arranged alphabetically by state and then by year, provides the election returns, along with each candidate's name, party, number of votes and percentage of votes. Explanatory footnotes and source information accompany the returns. Researchers familiar with Mr. Dubin's massive work on Congressional elections (a Booklist "Editors' Choice") will understand the scope, detail, accuracy and uniqueness of this new work.
