Horace Greeley did run against Ulysses S. Grant as the presidential nominee of the newly-formed Liberal Republican Party in 1872. He lost in a landslide despite having the additional support of the Democratic Party. He was devastated by the death of his wife five days before the election and died himself one month later, before the Electoral College had met. See more »
You HIRED a female assassin. Now Mr. Greeley, you are a wise and influential man, but your judgment of employees... especially women... leaves a lot to be desired.

Branded certainly did love playing with History! Here is just another example of an episode that uses real-life people in the story. Horace Greeley was indeed a newspaper man. Though I don't think he was exactly the personality the real Greeley was...
And in this episode, we actually see Jason McCord PUNCH a WOMAN!!! "There's a first time for everything," he says before punching her. Of course, I reckon she deserved it...quite humorous. I don't think Lucas McCain would have EVER gotten away with doing that!
Anyway, it's sad to see that the series is almost over...And I so do wish that these episodes were not cut!
