James G. Blaine 1892 Republican Grand Old Party Presidential Political Ribbon For Sale
Up for offer is a James G. Blaine Political Ribbon/Pin that is in EXCELLENT CONDIITON. The ribbon is made of Red Satin with an Actual Oval Photograph
of Republican Senator Blaine applied to the Ribbon. The gold print on the ribbon is also in Excellent Condition as is the twisted Gold Wire Braided Fringe at the bottom. The fringe looks crooked at the left end but it is curled due to it being wire.
For a little bit of history on James G. Blaine, he served as Speak of the House & won election to the U.S. House of Representatives, and served there
from March 4, 1863 until July 10, 1876, when he resigned. He served as Speaker of the House from 1869 to 1875, and it was during this period that he authored the proposed "Blaine Amendment" to the U.S.
Blaine ran for president three times, in 1876, 1880 and 1884. In the 1876 contest, he was considered the logical choice for the Republican nomination, but shortly before the nominating convention began, a House investigating committee accused him of using his position as speaker to get a land grant for a railroad in Arkansas and then sell the railroad's bonds at a tidy profit. Blaine lost the nomination to Rutherford B. Hayes, on a narrow convention vote of 379-351. He was named to the U.S. Senate in 1876. He sought the Republican presidential nomination again in 1880, but lost to James A. Garfield, who won the general election and appointed Blaine Secretary of State. When Garfield was assassinated, Blaine resigned and retired briefly to private life.
