Event data
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: 1860
End date: 1860
 
Notes:
The exact date is not known, but one game was printed in the New York Clipper of 15 Dec. 1860, saying that the game was 'recently contested', so I am guessing that the 2 offhand games were played sometime in 1860. Only 2 games were played between Elson and Thompson on this occasion.
