Torch light procession in New York, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Torch light procession in New York, 1844. A parade held by supporters of James Knox Polk, winner of the presidential election. The large building to the left off the view is Tammany Hall, brilliantly illuminated; the balconies filled with company hurraing with extacy; and the steps crowded with spectators. Across the street is suspended, from the attic of the hall to a lofty young hickory-tree, a large banner, inscribed with the candidate's name[s - Polk & George M. Dallas]. In the procession are a large eagle, backed by a wreath; a huge ship, inscribed "Free Trade", and "Sailors Rights", on the sails; and a large transparent star, inscribed "Texas"; whilst the brilliancy of the whole is heightened by a powerful Drummond light'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V
