The Election of 1864

U.S News and World Report is running a series on important elections in U.S. history. The election of 1864, when Lincoln thumped George McClellan, is the current offering.

The author's level of understanding of Lincoln's perilous standing through most of 1864, and the grave difficulties he and the North faced during the heavy combats that year, is open to question.

Dimitri Rotov could have fun with this one.
