Alexander Hamilton Bullock, detail

In state elections across the country, three Republican governors were reelected to their second terms in Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.  Alexander Bullock won his second of what would be four one-year terms as Massachusetts chief executive, Civil War veteran William Marshall secured a second two-year term in Minnesota, and Lucius Fairchild, who lost an arm at Gettysburg, was reelected to his second of three terms as Wisconsin governor.  (By John Osborne)
