Overview

To the American imagination, the Tweed Ring, headed by William "Boss" Tweed, was the most notorious of all political machines in urban America. Over the years, New York_s Tweed and the Tammany Hall organization have become virtually synonymous with civic corruption. Boss Tweed: A Documentary History brings together nearly 6,000 pages of legal and financial records that have, with very few exceptions, escaped scholarly attention. Researchers can see, from a critical perspective, the charges brought against Tweed and the strength of the evidence that supported these charges. The collection contains the records of litigation of 14 New York City officials and contractors. Among the financial records are 190 vouchers and bills presented to the city from 1864 to 1877, and checks or drafts drawn between 1869 and 1870.
