SEE PHOTO-----COMPLETE, State Register (IOWA) dated in May, 1868.

This newspaper contains a prominent page 2 ad supporting the Republican ticket including ULYSSES S GRANT for President in the election of 1868. The ad is headed by a portrait of GRANT, the 1868 Republican nominee.

The United States presidential election of 1868 was the 21st quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 3, 1868. It was the first presidential election to take place after the American Civil War, during the period referred to as Reconstruction. As three of the former Confederate states (Texas, Mississippi, and Virginia) were not yet restored to the Union, their electors could not vote in the election.

The incumbent President, Andrew Johnson, who succeeded to the presidency in 1865 following the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, was unsuccessful in his attempt to receive a Democratic presidential nomination due to his unpopularity. By 1868, Johnson had alienated many of his constituents and had been impeached by Congress. Although Johnson kept his office, his presidency was crippled. After numerous ballots, the Democrats nominated Horatio Seymour to take on the Republican candidate, Civil War General Ulysses S. Grant. Grant was one of the most popular men in the North due to his efforts in concluding the Civil War successfully for the Union.

Although Seymour was buried in the electoral college, he gave Grant a good race for the popular vote, especially considering the temporary advantages that Grant could draw upon. In addition to his appeal in the North, Grant benefited from votes among the newly enfranchised freedmen in the South, while the temporary political disenfranchisement of many Southern whites also helped Republican margins there. It was also the first election in which African Americans could vote (in accordance with the Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution) in every (Northern or Reconstructed) state; Grant won office thanks to the black vote, which numbered above 700,000. This would make Grant the first President to be elected with a minority of the white vote.

Every state except Florida used a popular vote to determine electors.
