CE2 Alternate US Elections

Recommended Posts

Marcy would have been a much better president than Buchanan, I think. However, he died in 1857, which means we get Buchanan (the VP) anyway.

But the game said the Congress is Republican dominated (which I interpret as the RL Opposition bloc), so Fremont was elected.

Oh okay. In that case, the Civil War starts in 1857, and MO, DE, KY, MD would have probably seceded as well, much like in the RP.

Election of 1860

According to the dice roll the following had declared to run:

Democrats (the term Northern Democrats is arguably irrelevant, since according to the dices, the Southern Democrats declined to field a candidate):

  • Robert M.T. Hunter
  • James Guthrie
  • Andrew Johnson
  • Samuel S. Dickinson
  • Horatio Seymour
  • Franklin Pierce
  • Jefferson Davis
  • James Buchanan

Republicans:

  • John C. Frémont
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • William Seward
  • Charles Sumner

Millard Fillmore led the Constitutional Union Party without opposition, the Liberty Party ran with Smith.

I had to get in South Carolina on the ballot, as the game would have probably crashed without Southern Democrats running.

Fremont lost the nomination Seward, who ran together with Hannibal Hamlin against Guthrie/Hunter and Fillmore/Goggin. The Republican Congress elected Seward/Hamlin.

Yeah that would have been probably true. Sadly I cannot adapt the 1860 scenario so quickly, so I will continue with the one available.

No worries. I wasn't asking that you adapt the scenario. I was only stating what I think would have happened.

Oh I know I did not read it like that, I would love to have the time to adapt all scenarios to have accurate incumbents but I am satisfied with this playthrough anyway.

Election of 1864

According to the dice roll the following had declared to run:

Democrats:

  • Millard Fillmore
  • James Buchanan
  • James O'Conor

Republicans:

  • Benjamin F. Butler
  • Simon Cameron
  • Ulysses S. Grant

Seward was no candidate in this scenario, so we are going to assume that he bowed out of running again. Grant/Hamlin won against Buchanan/Thomas H. Seymour.
