The Convention prominently featured loyal Border State men like Robert Breckinridge of Kentucky and William Brownlow of Tennessee. A dispute, well-documented here, on the seating of delegates is a foretaste of Congressional Reconstruction, with Thaddeus Stevens arguing that delegates from States in rebellion ought not to be seated at the Convention or represented in the Electoral College. This offering includes the nomination of Lincoln, the Vice-Presidential contest, and the list of delegates.
