Quick Overview

1873, Invitation to the Inaugural Ball for President Ulysses S. Grant's Second Term.
This beautiful printed invitation to the Presidential Inaugural Ball held on March 4, 1873, was for President Grant's second term, with his new Vice-President, Henry Wilson. This invitation measures 9.75" x 7.75," . At the top is an ornate American shield with a "G" and "W" monogram (for Grant and Wilson) in the center. Below the shield is a list of the Managers of the Ball, which reads like a "Who's Who" of 19th Century Washington, D.C. The names include Roscoe Conkling, Simon Cameron, Winfield Scott Hancock, Hannibal Hamlin, James Garfield, Chief Justice Chase, William T. Sherman, and others.

As most collectors know, 1873 Grant Inaugural Ball Invitations are far scarcer than examples from the 1869 Inauguration. Not in ideal condition, but an excellent opportunity to acquire this scarce item at a very good price. Would look great framed!
