The Republican Convention nominated sitting President Taft, some would argue unscrupulously, denying the seating of delegates won in primary elections during the insurgent campaign by former President Theodore Roosevelt. This event will spawn the Bull Moose party and the defeat of Taft by Wilson in 1912. TR outpolled Taft as well. This is not a print on demand repro but the real deal.
