Famous November 3, 1948 edition of the "Chicago Daily Tribune" newspaper with the erroneous front page headline "Dewey Defeats Truman", the day after incumbent United States President, Harry S. Truman, won an upset victory over Republican challenger and Governor of New York, Thomas E. Dewey, in the 1948 presidential election. It was famously held up by Truman at a public appearance following his successful election, smiling triumphantly at the error. Paper is in excellent condition.
