  1. ELECTION 1892 President Lincoln started his term carrying out a plan of the Sherman Administration - holding the Pan-American Conference, so that America can secure its influence in Latin America. He signed into law the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, the Silver Purchase Act, and the McKinley Tariff. Lincoln also successfully avoided a war with Chile. When 1892 coming along, the Democrats all rallied behind Grover Cleveland once again. To appease the party bosses, and Southern Republicans, Lincoln agreed to drop Douglass from the ticket and replace him with Congressman William McKinley, so that he didnt get challenged for renomination. Former Congressman James Weaver, a populist candidate who had ran in the past 3 elections, has a considerable lead in the Western states. Cleveland campaigned hard as the gold standard candidate, while Lincoln and Weaver were bimetalists. Early on, Cleveland was in the lead, but eventually, was overtaken by Lincoln and lost the election.

  2. ELECTION 1888 President Sherman had a decent presidency. He signed into law a Presidential Succession Act, passed a pension bill for Union soldiers, and presided over the repeal of the Tenure of Office Act, the same act that almost impeached Andrew Johnson. The rest of the Sherman preisdency was quiet, and the people of the country were relieved that he wasnt as insane as he was made out to be. Due to his influence and popularity, he made sure party leaders nominated his Vice President, Robert Lincoln, to become the next president, unopposed. The Democrats were behind Grover Cleveland, while other candidates were mainly former Confederate generals holding governorships, as well as another candidate being the son of Robert E. Lee. Cleveland dominated the primary, winning the nomination easily. Cleveland campaigned on a smaller government with more free market policy, while Lincoln, like his father, supported a bigger one. Lincoln rode his father's legacy and Sherman's popularity into office. This made him the first son of a president to become president himself, while his running mate, Secretary of State Frederick Douglass, became the first African American Vice President.

  3. ELECTION 1884 President English thought the most he could do to honor Tilden was to have a quiet, scandal free presidency. By the time 1883 rolled around, English announced he would not run for his own term. The Democratic Primary was between candidates such as New York Governor Grover Cleveland, Senator Thomas Bayard, former governor Thomas Hendricks, former Vice President George McClellan, General Winfield Scott Hancock, and Speaker John G. Carlisle. The race was between Cleveland and Bayard mainly, and even though Cleveland led in popularity, the brokered convention selected Bayard. On the Republican side, Senator John Sherman, former Secretary James G. Blaine, Senator Benjamin Harrison (also the grandson of former President William Henry Harrison), former Secretary Robert Lincoln (son of Abraham Lincoln), and advisor to multiple presidents and civil rights leader Frederick Douglass. The real competition didnt come until controversial Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman entered the race. Sherman was known for his march to the sea, in which his men burned and raped Georgia into ruin. He was a frontrunner from the time he entered the race, and ended up winning the nomination on the first ballot, and selecting Robert Lincoln to be his running mate. Throughout the race, Sherman's character was attacked harshly by Bayard, and to counteract accusations of Sherman wanting to become a dictator, he announced he would only serve a single term. That seemed to be enough for voters, as Sherman won in a landslide, 341-60.

  4. ELECTION 1880 President Grant had the enjoyment of his third term being one relatively quiet, and also scandal free. His negotiations helped to prevent a war with Mexico, and also gave support of building a Central American canal to give easier tradde routes from the Atlantic to Pacific. His only controversy in this term was the Railroad Strikes of 1877. He ended up being selected by his party to run for a fourth term in 1880, and the Republicans also replaced Vice President Wheeler on the ticket with Robert Lincoln, the son of former President Abraham Lincoln. The Democratic primary was yet again another brokered convention, but Samuel Tilden had yet again won renomination. The race was hard fought and bitter, mainly over the issues of tariffs and immigration from China, and Grant was narowly defeated by Tilden. Tilden's success was short lived however, as he was assassinated by a shot in the heart by mentally unstable Charles Gueitau, who's reasoning for the assassination was Grant's defeat in the election. This led to Vice President William Hayden English being sworn in as President. English would leave the Vice Presidency vacant during his term, and also pledges not to seek a term of his own in 1884.

  5. ELECTION 1876 President Grant's second term was marred by scandal. The first big challenge of his second term was the Credit Mobilier scandal. People from the Union Pacific Railroad put up a dummy corporation to pay themselves, and paid off 13 senators and Vice President Colfax, who ended up being the first vice president to resign due to the scandal. The Panic of 1873 happened soon after, leading to a 6 year depression. The major success of this term for Grant though was the Civil Rights Act of 1875, which was shortly followed by another scandal. espite all of this, nobody seeked to challenge Grant for a third term. The Democratic race was between Governor Samuel Tilden, General William S Hancock, Governor Thomas Hendricks, former Vice President George McClellan, and former governor Horatio Seymour. Tilden won the nomination on the first ballot. In the end, Grant won the Popular vote and Electoral Vote, but these elecotral votes were contested in a few states. Due to this, Republicans and Democrats forged the Compromise of 1877, in which emocrats would not oppose the Grant victory if Grant pulled the last remaining troops out of the South, effectivley ending the Reconstruction era.

  6. Due to the Credit Mobilier Scandal. I'll put more details into the next post, but I had it happen after the election than during his first term as VP
  7. ELECTION 1872 President Grant wanted to go down as one of the greatest presidents in the history of the nation. The second Republican president, he had to find a way out of the shadow of Lincoln. In the first two months of his presidency, the transcontinental railroad was completed. The 15th Amendment was ratified, and the Ku Klux Klan was labled a terrorist organization. The only real blemish on Grant's record was the Black Friday scandal. The Radical Republicans in charge of the party nominated Grant. This angered other parts of the party, leading to the formation of the Liberal Republican Party, which was led by Chief Justice Salmon Chase. The Democrats nominated former Vice President George McClellan from a crowded field of candidates. The race was long and hard fought, and the election ended up being a blowout win by Grant, 284-83.

  8. Stand with Rand homie!! I'll gladly claim Senator Paul
  9. ELECTION 1868 Andrew Johnson was swept into the presidency by an assassin's bullet. Johnson was wanting a Lincoln style Reconstruction, as had Lincoln. This however, would not happen, as the Radical Republicans took power in congress. Johnson was left virtually powerless. The Reconstruction Acts were all 3 passed via overriding Johnson's veto. Johnson was faced with impeachment in 1868 by his attempt to remove Radical Republican War Secretary Edwin Stanton from his office, violating the Tenure of Office Act. Johnson was acquitted by one vote in the senate. By the time the primaries rolled around, Johnson had little to no chance at being renominated, and was eventually beat out by former Congressman and 1864 Vice Presidential nominee George H. Pendleton. The Republicans were between war hero General Ulysses Grant, former President and Secretary of State William Seward, and Senators John C Fremont and Charles Sumner. There was virtually no competition, and Grant won the nominations, and went on to win the presidency.

  10. ELECTION 1864 President Lincoln seemed to most to be calling for war even in his inauguration speech, in regards to the secession of the Confederate States of America. After the attack on Fort Sumter, Lincoln took a dictatorial stance in the war, calling for more troops via a draft, suspending habeas corpus, and by jailing any of his critics. The war ensued for three years, and Lincoln's chances at re-election look slim. In a strategic move, he issues the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, freeing slaves in Confederate territory. From this point on, Lincoln made the war a "moral", a crusade against slavery and those who defended it, rather than a war to preserve the Union as originally described. The election of 1864 came quickly, and Lincoln faced challenges in his own party from Chief Justice Salmon Chase, Senator Charles Sumner, and Senator Benjamin Wade, all of whom looked at Lincoln as a tyrant. Lincoln overwhelmingly won re-nomination, while in a showing of national unity, nominated Democratic Governor Andrew Johnson to be his new Vice President. In the Democratic Primary, the race was between former General George B. McClellan, Governor Horatio Seymour, former Congressman Millard Fillmore, and former Secretary of State James Buchanan. McClellan won the primary on the first ballot. John C. Fremont also made a run as a third party candidate. Lincoln felt he would lose the campaign, but multiple military victories influenced voters enough to elect him for a second term. By the time a month passed into his second term, th Confederate Army under Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union General Ulysses Grant, thus ending the war. A week after that, on April 15, 1865, while at a play with his wife, President Lincoln was shot and killed by actor John Wilkes Booth. The man that saved the Union, albeit in unethical ways, was dead. Andrew Johnson was now the President of the United States. He went on to appoint McClellan his Vice President in 1866.

  11. ELECTION 1860 President Douglas' second term has not gone as he had hoped. John Brown's Raid and the Dred Scott decision had alienated him from his northern supporters, and his moderate positions made him disliked in the South. His own Vice President, Sam Houston, left the Democratic Party to form the Constitutional Union Party, in which he announces he is going to run for president. The Democratic Party barely renominates Douglas, after substantial challenges from Secretary of State James Buchanan and Secretary of War Jefferson Davis, among 6 other candidates. Douglas getting the nomination caused a split in the Democratic party, with former Congressman John C. Breckinridge running against his own party, with extremely strong support in the south. The Republican Party was led by former President William Seward, searching to get elected to a term of his own, but challenges from 9 other candidates, including Senator Abraham Lincoln, 1856 nominee John C. Fremont, and Senator Charles Sumner, made for a brokered convention. The convention ended up nominating Senator Lincoln for the presidency. The battle for the presidency in the North was focused mainly in New York between Lincoln and Douglas, while in the South the race was between the moderate Houston and the hard line Breckinridge. The regional battles for the presidency left the electoral vote split with no majority, but the Republican led Congress selected Lincoln to be the President, and the senate barely named Hannibal Hamlin, Lincoln's running mate, the VP. This makes Lincoln the first Republican President. The divide between North and South was never more clear, and the first states started to secede from the Union in December of 1860, to form the Confederate States of America.

  12. ELECTION 1856 Being the first Democrat elected since Andrew Jackson, President Stephen Douglas had a lot to live up to. In office, he enacted a lot of new policy, some considered to be successes, other considered to lead to greater divides between the North and the South. Early on he had success with the Gadsden Purchase from Mexico, and the Japanese opened up trade with the Americans. However, his biggest controversy in office was the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which let the states decide whether or not they would be slave or free states based on popular sovereignty. In the wake of this act, anti-slavery forces out of the ashes of the Whig Party form the Republican Party. His divisive policy led to him being challenged by James Buchanan from the northern Democrats, and Jefferson Davis of the southern Democrats. When the convention was brokered, Davis through his support towards Douglas, making him renominated alongside Vice President Houston. On the Republican side, the challengers were former President William Seward, California Senator John C. Fremont, Massachusetts senator Charles Sumner, and former Illinois congressman Abraham Lincoln. The delegates to the brokered convention nominated Fremont. This election was one of the closest ever seen on the state by state level with the majority of states won by Fremont being won by less than 1 million votes. New York Congressman Millard Fillmore led the Know Nothings to victory in two states, but that tilted the election in Douglas' favor who ended up winning re-election.

  14. ELECTION 1852 William Seward just expected to run as Vice President again with President Clay for his 4th term in 1852. The unexpected though happened when Henry Clay passed away that summer. This thrust Seward into the presidency, and into a presidential election. By the time he was the nominee, alongside former Congressman Abraham Lincoln of Illinois, the Democratic primary came and went. The race heavily favored Pierce and Buchanan, but the convention came out with moderate Illinois Senator Stephen Douglas as the nominee, with former Texas President and current Senator Sam Houston as his running mate. Douglas was more of a moderate on the issue of slavery, and Seward was a hard abolitionist. The race was close, and Douglas came out on top. The divisions in the Whig party on slavery has taken its toll though, and the party dissolved, leaving the new Republican Party in its place, founded to firmly stand against slavery.

  15. ELECTION 1848 Henry Clay came into office agitated about the speedy annexation of Texas before he took office. Clay did not want Texas annexed, because of the issue of slavery. The real issue is, is a skirmish on the Texas-Mexico border, between US soldiers under command of Zachary Taylor and Mexican soldiers. Clay had no other option but to declare war. Clay spoke out firmly against expansionists for causing the war, although seeming hypocritical due to his controversial signing of the Oregon Treaty. His excuse was "to prevent the spread of slavery." By 1848, election year, the war came to an end, but to appease the expansionists, Clay supported the treaty to annex a majority of Mexican land into being US territories. Clay faced challenges in the primary. Secretary of State Daniel Webster challenged the president, running against his record on expansion. General Taylor also ran, and had popular support among others because of his age difference and worries about Clay's health and stances on issues. In the end, delegates to the convention voted for Clay and Seward to be renominated. In the Democratic Party, former Vice President Martin Van Buren made another run for the presidency, he won on the ballot, facing major challenges from multiple candidates, most notably from associate justice Levi Woodbury. The rematch was on between Clay and Van Buren, and Clay, coming off of a war victory and the gaining of territory, was able to swing votes towards him from all over the country. His second term was full of success. such as the Compromise of 1850, but there was the failure of the Fugitive Slave Act, which had its veto overridden. This pushed the issue of slavery itself into the biggest issue of the day. Clay wanted to do all he could, but his life was cut short as he passed away in 1852, leaving WIlliam Seward president. Seward himself is an abolitionist, causing tension between himself, his party and the south. The Whig party itself, due to all of this, looks to be on the verge of collapse.
