Tammany Hall was the Democratic Party political machine that played a major role in controlling New York City politics from the 1790s to the 1960s. The Tammany Society was founded on May 12, 1789. By 1798, the Society's activities had grown increasingly politicized, and eventually Tammany Hall emerged as the center for Democratic-Republican Party politics in the city. The sketch shows the original building where the society met.
