1864 Republican National Convention

Template:Infobox National Political Convention

The 1864 National Union Convention, the presidential nominating convention of the National Union Party of the United States, took place from June 7 to June 8, 1864 in Baltimore, Maryland.

There were two rival Republican conventions in 1864. The first was by a group of radicals upset with Lincoln's position on the issues of slavery and post-war reconciliation with the southern states. They met in Cleveland, Ohio and nominated John C. Frémont for President on May 31, 1864, adopting the name Radical Democracy Party.[1] This 1864 fission in the Republican Party divided the party into two factions: the anti-Lincoln Radical Republicans, who nominated Frémont, and the pro-Lincoln Republicans. Frémont abandoned his political campaign in September 1864, after he brokered a political deal in which Lincoln removed U.S. Postmaster General Montgomery Blair from office.

The 1864 National Union Convention was held in Baltimore, Maryland, from June 7 to June 8, 1864. It nominated President Abraham Lincoln for reelection, and nominated a War Democrat, Military Governor Andrew Johnson of Tennessee, for Vice President. The ticket was successful in the election of 1864.
