Bizarre elections in American history | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 


Elections always have an element of
controversy, with people passionately rooting
for their candidate of choice. The 2000 election
between Al Gore and George W. Bush is
perhaps the craziest, most controversial
election in U.S. history with the Supreme Court
ultimately deciding the outcome more than a
month after the election.

But, as shared by CNN.com, there have been
many truly zany moments in American
elections.

1800: Prelude to a duel
The outcome of the 1800 contest between
Thomas Jefferson and John Adams was so
bizarre, the United States had to amend the
Constitution.

Pre-12th Amendment, Electoral College
members each had two votes for president,
and there were no official tickets. Whoever
garnered the most votes was president, and
second place took the vice presidency.
The election of 1800 saw Jefferson tie with
Aaron Burr. Both had 73 votes to Adams' 65.

Congress would be called upon to break the
tie. Enter Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first
treasury secretary, founder of the Federalist
Party and a man who did not care for Adams,
Jefferson or Burr. Hamilton engaged in a
campaign to convince the Federalists to vote
for Jefferson.

The House of Representatives finally voted to
name Jefferson the victor and Burr the veep on
February 7, 1801. The rivalry between Burr
and Hamilton would continue for more than
three years before Burr, still the sitting vice
president, killed Hamilton in a duel.

1872: Death of a candidate
Horace Greeley wasn't supposed to put up
much of a fight in his bid to unseat President
Ulysses S. Grant, but a schism in Grant's
Republican Party made things a little more
interesting.

Some Republicans defected, becoming Liberal
Republicans, and cast their lot with Greeley, a
Democrat who would go on to snare 44
percent of the popular vote, almost three
million ballots, despite him stopping
campaigning to tend to his sick wife, who died
a week before the election.

Before the Electoral College could cast its
votes, the newspaper founder died November
29, 1872, and 63 of his 66 votes were
dispersed among other Democrats.
Grant attended his rival's funeral.


1920: Prison campaign
It was a battle between two newspaper
publishers, but the election wasn't terribly
exciting. Republican Warren G. Harding
handed Democrat James Cox a historic
beatdown, taking more than 60 percent of the
popular vote along with 37 of the 48 states.
Third place is where it got interesting.

The Socialist Party of America enjoyed a
modicum of support at the outset of the 20th
century. Union leader Eugene Debs ran for
president in 1900, 1904, 1908 and 1912 and
secured roughly 6 percent of the popular vote
in 1912, more than 900,000 ballots.

In 1920, though, Debs had to run his fifth
campaign from the most unlikely of
headquarters: prison.

No stranger to incarceration -- he'd served time
in connection with an 1894 railroad strike --
Debs again drew the government's ire in 1918
when he gave an anti-war speech in Canton,
Ohio, in which he pilloried "the ruling class"
who made all the decisions to send "the
working class" to war.

"Yours not to reason why. Yours but to do and
die," he said.

He was convicted under an espionage law and
sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Demonstrations protesting his imprisonment
evolved into the May Day riots of 1919, and
Debs was later moved to the Atlanta Federal
Penitentiary, from where he conducted his
presidential campaign.

He would again secure more than 900,000
votes -- an impressive tally, but not nearly
enough to compete with Harding, who snared
more than 16 million.

The following year, on Christmas, Harding
commuted Debs' sentence to time served.

Presidents and technology | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 


Who was the first president to be on TV? To
use the radio? To fly on an airplane? Juni.com
is celebrating President’s Day with some
presidential history related to its favorite
subject: technology!

On April 30th, 1789, George Washington
became the first president of the United States.
Since that historic day nearly 231 years ago,
our country’s commanders-in-chief have
witnessed an astounding amount of
advancement and change, particularly in
technology. In fact, many American presidents
were some of the first to see the new
technologies of their day in action.

In honor of Election Day, here are some of the
presidents’ technological firsts.


Who was the First President to…

Be on TV?
Though Franklin D. Roosevelt made the first
presidential appearance on black and white TV
in 1939, for the World’s Fair, Harry S. Truman
was the first to give a presidential speech on
TV in 1947, during which he encouraged
Americans to aid European famine.

Truman was also the first president to have his
inauguration broadcasted on television in 1949.
Later, John F. Kennedy would be named the
"first television president" for pioneering live TV
coverage of political events, such as his
presidential debate against Republican
presidential candidate Richard Nixon.

Use the Radio?
Warren G. Harding was the first president to
install radio in the White House and broadcast
his voice nationally, in 1922. However, the
following president, Calvin Coolidge, was the
first to do regular addresses over radio.

Fly in an Airplane?
In January 1943, Franklin D. Roosevelt
became the first president to fly in an airplane
on official business. The plane, a Boeing 314
Flying Boat, also known as the "Dixie Clipper,"
helped a 60-year-old Roosevelt secretly and
hurriedly fly to the Casablanca Conference in
Morocco, where he discussed WWII strategy
with Winston Churchill.

Ride in a Car?
President William McKinley became the first
serving president to ride in a car in 1901, when
he took a short car ride in a car that was called
the “Stanley Steamer”. Theodore Roosevelt
became the first president to publicly ride a
government automobile in 1902.

Have his Voice Recorded?
During his first year in presidency in 1889,
Benjamin Harrison used a phonograph wax
cylinder to record his speech regarding the first
Pan-American Congress. The speech is now
the oldest surviving recording of a president’s
voice. While Rutherford B. Hayes did record a
speech several years prior, it was sadly lost.

Use a Telegraph?
The 1844, invention of the telegraph baffled
both the American people and government up
until Abraham Lincoln’s presidency in the
1860s. During his term, Lincoln used the
telegraph frequently to communicate with
generals during the Civil War.

In 1866, Lincoln’s successor, Andrew Johnson
installed the first telegraph room in the White
House so that he could efficiently relay urgent
messages.

Have a Phone?
In May 1877, Rutherford B. Hayes was the first
president to install a telephone in the White
House’s telegraph room. For his first call, he
called the inventor of the phone, Alexander
Graham Bell, who was located 13 miles away.
President Herbert Hoover installed the first
telephone in the Oval Office in 1929, to enable
the power of communications right at the
president’s desk.

Things you didn’t know about the 19th amendment | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 


On August 26, 2020, we celebrated the 100th
anniversary of women getting the right vote
when the 19th amendment to the U.S.
Constitution took effect. At a time of year when
we’re all going to polls, it’s important to
remember that is wasn’t all that long ago that
not everyone enjoyed the privilege. Check out
these facts from Trivia Today.

Single Women in New Jersey Could Vote in
1797 New Jersey single women were
temporarily able to vote because of their state
constitution, which was vague and said those
worth 50 pounds were eligible to vote. For 10
years, unmarried women voted in New Jersey,
but married women couldn’t because their
husbands were in control of all of the property
in the family, so those women were technically
worth zero. The New Jersey Assembly
changed the law in 1807 by restricting voting to
free white males who were 21 or over, citizens
of the state and who paid taxes.

A Proposed 19th Amendment Was Defeated
in 1878 An amendment proposed by Arlen
Sargent, a California Senator, was debated on
January 10, 1878, with the support of Susan B.
Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Although
hearings were held, several of the committee
members ignored the proceedings by staring
into space or reading as the debate continued.
The bill was reintroduced each year for 41
years before it finally passed.



The States Had Different Voting Rights
Before 1920 In January 1919, there were 15
states that allowed women to vote. Twenty-one
states barred women from voting such as
Texas, which only allowed females to vote in
primaries. The other 21 states did not allow
women to vote at all.

Millions of Women Received Voting Rights
Shortly after the 19th Amendment was ratified,
10 million women became eligible to vote. A
legal scholar at that time, Akhil Reed Amar,
said the volume of new voters made it the
largest democratizing event in the history of the
United States. These new voters took their
place alongside millions from 15 other states
and the Alaskan Territory where voting by
females was allowed.

A Missouri Woman Is Credited as Being the
First to Vote Under the Amendment
Although many women have been said to have
voted first after the passage of the 19th
Amendment, Mrs. Marie Ruoff Bynum, a
Hannibal, Missouri, resident, is often credited
with that honor. Although Mrs. Bynum and her
husband lived about 15 blocks from the polling
place, they walked there in drizzling rain and
she registered and voted. The polling book with
Mrs. Bynum’s signature is in Jefferson City,
housed in the state archives.

Squirrel stew, jelly beans, and hoecakes: Here are some of the favorite foods of the presidents | E-Neighborhood Advisor


This November when we’re thinking about all
things presidential, Business Insider has
shared the favorite foods of all of the
presidents.

Presidents have hundreds of staff members to
cater to their every whim during their time in
the White House. Though the Executive
Mansion hosts some of the country's most
exclusive and upscale dinners, each president
has different tastes for their everyday fuel. 

From squirrel stew to cheeseburger pizza, here
are some of the most unusual favorites. You
can read the whole list here:
https://www.businessinsider.com/presidents-favorite-food-dishes-white-house-2019-5#donald-trump-fast-food-44

Thomas Jefferson: Mac and cheese
Jefferson discovered macaroni during his
European travels and is credited with
popularizing the food in the U.S. after he
brought a machine for making the pasta back
from Naples, Italy.

Andrew Jackson: Leather britches
Jackson's favorite dish has nothing to do with
sturdy pants but is a term for green beans
cooked with bacon. 

Martin van Buren: Oysters
The half-shell snack was just one of van
Buren's favorite foods, in addition to
doughnuts, raisins, figs, and meat. 

William Henry Harrison: Squirrel stew
Harrison's proclivity for nature might have
contributed to his taste for squirrel, which was
a common protein at the time in a variety of
dishes.


Andrew Johnson: Hoppin' John
Southerner Johnson's comfort-food favorite is
made with black-eyed peas, rice, chopped
onion, sliced bacon, and salt. 

James Garfield: Squirrel soup
Garfield was the second president to count
squirrel as one of his favorite meals, which is
nearly unheard of today. 

Grover Cleveland: Pickled herring
Cleveland was a bachelor when he entered
the White House in 1884 and told a friend he
wished he could pass up the luxurious meals
for "pickled herring, a Swiss cheese, and a
chop instead of the French stuff."

Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Grilled cheese
According to Henrietta Nesbitt, Roosevelt's
White House housekeeper, FDR loved grilled
cheese sandwiches in addition to other classic
American foods, including scrambled eggs,
fish chowder, hot dogs, and fruitcake.

Richard Nixon: Cottage cheese and
ketchup
Nixon's unusual favorite of cottage cheese
and ketchup would raise eyebrows any time of
day, but the president especially liked it for
breakfast. 

Ronald Reagan: Jelly beans
Reagan was obsessed with the colorful snack,
and at one point reportedly ordered more than
300,000 to be placed around the Capitol,
White House, and other federal buildings each
month. 

George H.W. Bush: Pork rinds
The president reportedly caused sales of the
snack to skyrocket while he was on the
campaign trail and identified them as his
favorite, particularly when they were topped
with Tabasco. 

George W. Bush: Cheeseburger pizza
Former White House Chef Cristeta Comerford
told reporters after the president left office that
Bush loved what staff called "home-made
'cheeseburger pizzas' because every
ingredient of a cheeseburger is on top of a
margherita pizza."

Barack Obama: Nachos
The former president told comedian Jerry
Seinfeld that nachos were one of his greatest
vices.

Donald Trump: Fast food
Trump has a well-documented affection for
fast food. From serving it in the White House
to getting it delivered to his private plane, the
president has said Burger King and
McDonald's are among his favorites because
they promise a standard of cleanliness that's
hard to verify at other restaurants.
