Quick Overview

Original ticket to the National Progressive Convention held in 1912 in Chicago. The Progressive Party was created by a split in the Republican Party in the presidential election of 1912. It was formed by Theodore Roosevelt when he lost the Republican nomination to the incumbent President William Howard Taft and pulled his delegates out of the convention. The party is otherwise also known as the Bull Moose Party, after the party's emblem and after Roosevelt's boast that he was "as strong as a bull moose". Good for Third Day of the convention. Original stub still firmly attached. Seldom seen with the stub still attached.
