Radical Emancipation Ticket

MHM Archives

This political ticket promotes the candidates of the Radical Republican party for local St. Louis elections in 1863. This election and the national and state elections that occurred in 1864 fundamentally changed the balance of power in the state and put Radicals in a position to promote their agenda of emancipation and severe restrictions on those who were disloyal.
