1840 US Election update

Recommended Posts

I've decided to go on to 1840, rather than back to 1824 (I'll definitely do 1824 before I get to 1864). I'm on momentum for the Jacksonian Age. 

Update: Several candidates have been added as "what-if" candidates, including Fillmore and Pierce.

Thanks for making Fillmore a what-if candidate!

Any Liberty what-ifs, or is it just Birney still?

I'd like to add one or two more. If you wish to help, you could try to research the 1840 Liberty Party Convention and let me know who else was seriously considered.

Birney's candidacy seems to have been decided by 1839, though I did find a couple other what-if candidates:

William Lloyd Garrison (34 at time of election, 35 on Inauguration Day): What if the radical anti-constitutionalist and president of the American Anti-Slavery Society sought the nomination?

Gerrit Smith (43 in 1840): What if one of the main organizers of the Liberty Party decided to seek its nomination earlier than in reality?

John P. Hale is too young and currently a Democrat.

Update: I've updated quite a bit. So much so, that I can't type it all down on here. 

What I have left is:

  • Endorsers
  • Events
  • Adding Garrison and Smith as Liberty Party What Ifs @Caprice
  • Adding @Patine's logos
  • Adding @Lyly map (which will be added after I do all these updates)
  • Adding more issues
