Tenth National Bank

The Tenth National Bank was an American bank that existed in the 19th Century. At one time, financier Jay Gould acquired a controlling interest in the bank,[1] and New York's William M. Tweed ("Boss Tweed") was one of its directors. The Tenth National Bank was also "Gould's primary vehicle to finance his move to establish a gold corner," leading up to Black Friday (1869).[2]

The Bank failed in the 1870s.[3]
