Quite rare 1860 Presidential campaign ballot from Virginia, 3 ?" x 6 ¼", fine. A scarce ballot in support of Bell and Everett from a state that would soon seed from the Union. Several of the electors either served in the Confederate army, or were staunch Secessionists. Including Marmaduke Johnson, who served as a Captain in the Confederate Army. Also Lemmuel Bowden, who was Mayor of Williamsburg. Judge Francis T. Anderson was to give an oration and raise the US flag at the court house (April 1861), but when he learned that Virginia had seceded (17 April 1861) he announced that the flag now “was in the hands of the enemy and would not be raised in Lexington. A rare campaign ballot. Set.
