Collection Overview

Scope and Content
The William Anderson scrapbook (dated 1856; 0.23 cubic feet; 1 box) consists of newspaper clippings that provide details about the United States presidential campaign of 1856. The 1856 presidential election resulted in the election of Democrat James Buchanan over Republican John C. Fremont. The heated campaign focused on the expansion of slavery and the Kansas Nebraska act. These newspaper clippings from various newspapers represent a sampling of views on the campaign from the eastern, southeastern, and northeastern areas of the country. William Anderson compiled the scrapbook, but no other information could be found about the creator other than his name.
