Description: Seward stands with an umbrella and a handbag sporting a cane. In his pocket is a paper with the word “Tribune” on it. Horace Greeley of the Tribune wanted Seward as the Republican Candidate for presidency in 1860. However, Seward was not seen as the most popular candidate, though he was the most prominent, and subsequently, Abraham Lincoln was chosen as the Republican nominee, much to the chagrin of Seward. Subject Seward, William Henry, 1801-1872
