EDUCATORS ’ PERSPECTIVE
2 . Although Cleveland won the popular vote , Harrison won the electoral college vote . Disgruntled Democrats accused the Harrison campaign of using funds raised by Wanamaker to buy votes in Indiana and New York . Wanamaker professed ignorance of any such activity .
3 . Christ Before Pilate ( 1881 ) and Christ on Golgotha ( 1884 ) were huge paintings by Hungarian artist Mihály Munkácsy that hung in Wanamaker ’ s cavernous department store every Easter season and were an important part of Wanamaker ’ s efforts to consciously use his business to reflect his faith .
4 . The package contained a set of 58 goldplated spoons . At the event , Wanamaker recalled , “ I have been on the Parcel Post turnpike since 1889 , when I made an earnest and urgent argument for it and other postal service in my first annual report to President Harrison .”
