Amos Ellmaker and Other Thoughts

posted in: Blog, Premium Podcast | 0

A bunch of ‘leftovers’ but as promised in the episode about the Anti-Masonic party, we look at that party’s VP candidate.  Being a third party with very little chance to win and being the #2 spot did not spare Ellmaker from being attacked by opponents in an unusual way.   We also look at William Jennings Bryan’s history and family story told in his campaign book and a bit about the Battle of San Juan Hill.
