In 1864, incumbent President Lincoln and former Democrat Andrew Johnson ran on the National Union Party ticket--so named to attract War Democrats and Border State Unionists who would not vote Republican. After a gloomy summer of Union defeats and casualty lists, Lincoln's re-election hopes seemed slim. But, finally, several Union victories gave him enough support to win the election.
