Seymour, prominent Democrat-Copperhead New York politician, won his race for Governor, opposing Lincoln Administration policies, particularly the Emancipation Proclamation. His victory established him as the leading Democratic presidential candidate for 1868. Seymour lost that election; Grant swamped him in the Electoral College-- Seymour carried only eight States-- but Seymour got 47% of the popular vote. Item #36854
