Civil War 1864 Election


 On the political front, a movement within the Republican party to shelve Lincoln had collapsed as the tide turned in the Union's favor. With Andrew Johnson , Lincolm's own choice for Vice President over the incumbent Hannibal Hamlin , the President was renominated in June, 1864. The Democrats nominated McClellan, who still had a strong popular following, on an ambiguous peace platform (largely dictated by Clement L. Vallandigham , leader of the Copperheads ), which the ex-general repudiated. Even so, Lincoln was easily reelected.
