Historical Snapshot – Hemenway Senate Rally

Dec 20, 2022 | Historical Snapshots

Pictured below is a U.S. Senate Candidate Rally in Fort Branch, Indiana, circa 1894. This rally in particular is believed to be for Indiana Republican Representative James Alexander Hemenway, who was elected into the Senate for the 54th Congress (1895-1897).

In the photo, Ed Yates is driving the first wagon, Bill Bird and Walter Grey are in the second wagon, Joe Maher is riding a mule, John Lockwood is driving a free trade buggy, and Alvis Lowe is standing.

This photograph was taken at the location that is now where the Fort Branch Public Library Carnegie building stands.
