Description
 
Eight (8) brightly colored tickets to the Democratic Republican General Committee, held at Tammany Hall, New York City. For 1886, 1888, 1889 and 1890. Each includes the Chairman  and Secretaries. The reverse of the heavy stock cards is blank.  Presumably the tickets were color coded for various wards or districts of the city. . An electioneering organization affiliated with Tammany and the county Democrats. It owned a club house and much like a European "party of integration" it implicated itself in the social life of its members: conducting excursions and clambakes, and involving the wives and children of members in its activities". In an effort to counter the threat posed by the United Labor party in 1886 to its position in the prevailing balance of factional politics, Tammany extended throughout the city the type of organization that had proved so successful in the Annexed District.   The History of American Electoral Behavior edited by Joel H.
