Horace Greeley (1811-1872) founded the New York Tribune in 1841. He was a powerful political voice, ardently against slavery, and is regarded as one of our nation's greatest moral leaders. One of his editorials contained the infamous challenge to "Go West, young man". This print, published the year of his unsuccesful bid for the Presidency and his sudden death, shows a peaceful Greeley at home with his wife and two daughters. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Portraits , Famous People
