1864 Presidential Election Meg Thompson talked about the 1864 election between President Abraham Lincoln and General George McClellan. She argued that President Lincoln was so unsure about his chances of reelection that he had his cabinet members sign a “blind memorandum,” which pledged cooperation with Lincoln’s then-unknown challenger if President Lincoln lost.
