After a gloomy summer of Union defeats and casualty lists, President Lincoln's re-election hopes seemed slim. But, finally, several Union victories provided the public support to win the 1864 election by a landslide. The phrase "Rally 'round the Flag, boys" was part of a Lincoln-Johnson campaign song modified from the 1862 patriotic song, "The Battle Cry of Freedom."
