A definitive volume on the election of United States governors during the Civil War, Reconstruction, and Industrialization periods, this book provides election results of the gubernatorial races from 1861 to 1911. It offers the reader both state and county-level voting details of the highest directly elected office in the nation. The returns are presented in two parts. The first section provides an annual summary of gubernatorial votes by year, organized alphabetically by state. The second section provides returns by county for each election. Wherever possible, the data included is based on official election returns, and the book includes bibliographic sources for each covered election.
