1876: Corrupt Tammany Hall leader William Magear Tweed, better known as "Boss Tweed," is delivered to authorities in New York City after being captured in Spain. Tweed, who had earlier served a year in jail after being convicted for stealing up to $45 million from New York City taxpayers through political corruption, fled the country while awaiting a civil trial in which New York State was seeking to recover $6 million in embezzled funds. He would end up dying in jail in New York City.
