Presidential election 1864
- Presidential election 1864
These reconstructed maps, precursors to contemporary news maps which provide instantaneous updates to election returns, depict the results of Presidential election in 1864. This map, which was prepared for the nation’s first historical atlas, highlights the political tensions that underlay the strong sectional differences contributing to the Civil War. With the seceded southern states not voting in 1864, the race was between Lincoln and his Democratic opponent George McClellan.
- Paullin, Charles Oscar, 1868 or 1869-1944
