In a presidential election there can only be one winner, everyone else is just . . . a loser. On this last Sunday of the 2016 election cycle, Green-Wood provides some historical perspective and insight into of the campaigns of yore. Hear of the ambitions and political upsets of presidential hopefuls, including De Witt Clinton (who lost in 1812 to Madison), Horace Greeley (who lost in 1872 to Grant), as well as several obscure candidates with great stories of their own.


$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$25 for non-members.
