[POLK, James K. (1795-1849)]. N.H. Patriot Extra. Concord, 9 November 1844. Small folio (368 x 222 mm). Broadside with small cartoon illustration, old folds, small holes and few tears in margins, some offsetting. NEW YORK SPEAKS OUT AND VIRGINIA RESPONDS! On November 7, celebratory shots rang out in the Capital after returns came in from western New York which clinched the state and the presidency for Polk. Polk, the 11th President of the United States, served from 1845 to 1849 and is often remembered for his ambitious and successful expansionist agenda. Elected on a platform that included the annexation of Texas and the acquisition of Oregon, Polk achieved these goals during his presidency. His administration negotiated the Oregon Treaty with Britain, settling the dispute over the Oregon Territory, and annexed Texas, leading to the Mexican-American War (1846–1848). The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo concluded the war, resulting in significant territorial gains for the United States, including California and the southwestern territories. Polk’s presidency is characterized by its focus on westward expansion, but it also faced controversy and criticism, particularly regarding the war with Mexico and its impact on the issue of slavery in the newly acquired territories. He chose not to seek reelection and left office in 1849, passing away shortly thereafter in 1849.
