Martin Van Buren 1848 Free-Soil Poster

In the 1848 Presidential election, Martin Van Buren ran as the candidate for a new third party. The Free-Soil Party was group of disaffected Democrats opposed to the extension of slavery into the south-western territories captured from Mexico during the Mexican-American War. Martin Van Buren was the presidential candidate and Charles Francis Adams was chosen as Van Buren’s running mate. The Free-Soil Party received 10% of the popular vote in 1848 but no electoral votes. The Whig candidate and Mexican War hero Zachary Taylor won the Presidency in 1848. After the 1848 presidential election, Martin Van Buren would retire to Lindenwald.
