    Political: (book) "Our Hero General U.S. Grant Where, When, & How He Fought. In Words of One Syllable," by Josephine Pollard. 1885. 167p. McLoughlin Brothers, Publishers. Edwin Forbes (illustrator) with 86 etchings. Pictorial hardboard cover featuring Grant on horseback. The author's message explains, "This is a book for boys - small boys, from six to 12 years of age, who love to read, or to be read to, from books that are not chock full of great big words. It is not a book for girls at all. They will not care for it. The big boy, who does not have to stop to spell out the long words and guess what they mean, will turn up his nose at it. But let him. That will not hurt us. It is the small boy we have set out to please, and if he reads what is here told of U. S. Grant he will - when he grows up - seek to know more of this great and good man, to whom we, of the U-nited States, owe so much..." This is an amazing book.

    Political: Wooden ballot box. Oldest form of democratic voting in America according to Smithsonian Institution. Marbles were in front box and placed through hole to back container--one marble one vote per individual (white/yes and black/no). One black vote normally voided the candidate or issue.

The back of the box has a 5" handle so the box can be easily moved around making it convenient for people to vote, although it was often also placed on a pedestal or table in the center of the room and people came forward one at a time and chose a marble to slip into the hole casting their vote. This original box has been refurbished. A great conversation item and display piece! Approx. 13" long. $30.00
