Baltimore Convention[ edit ] Republicans loyal to Lincoln created a new name for their party in convention at BaltimoreMaryland during the first week in June in order to accommodate the War Democrats who supported the war and wished to separate themselves from the Copperheads.
This is the main reason why War Democrat Andrew Johnson was selected to be the vice presidential nominee as then-current Vice President Hannibal Hamlin was not nominated. The National Unionists supporting the Lincoln—Johnson ticket also hoped that the new party would stress the national character of the war.
The convention's temporary chairman, Robert Jefferson Breckinridge of Kentucky, explained that he could support Lincoln on this new ticket for the following reason: But as an Abolition party, as a Republican party, as a Whig party, as a Democratic party, as an American [Know-Nothing] party, I will not follow you one foot.

On September 23, Lincoln asked for and received Blair's resignation. The National Union ticket went on to win handily in the election ofdefeating the Democratic ticket of General George B. McClellan whom Lincoln had previously relieved of his command and George H.

After the bitter break with the Republicans in Congress over Reconstruction policies, Johnson used federal patronage to build up a party of loyalists, but it proved to be unsuccessful.
The convention sought to bring together moderate and conservative Republicans and defecting Democrats and forge an unbeatable coalition behind President Johnson and his Reconstruction policy.
