Which presidential candidate won Michigan in 1860?

Presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln won the state of Michigan during the 1860 presidential election. Lincoln won most of the Midwest and northern states.


Who did Lincoln defeat in the 1864 election?

Lincoln (President) and Andrew Johnson (Vice-President), running on the National Union ticket defeated George B. McLellin (candidate for President) and George H. Pendleton (Vice-Presidential candidate) who were running on the Democratic Party Ticket. McLellin was the Commanding General of the United States Army at the outset of the Civil War but was removed from that position by Lincoln following the Battle of Antietam. He was privately dismissive, even derisive, of Lincoln as the commander-in-chief and Lincoln obviously lacked confidence in him, so the election of 1864 was just another example of them clashing (with Lincoln coming out on top again).


What office were Lincoln and Douglas running for when they debated?

The Lincoln-Douglas Debates of 1858 were a series of seven debates between Abraham Lincoln, the Republican candidate for Senate in Illinois, and incumbent Senator Stephen Douglas, the Democratic Party candidate. Although Lincoln was a candidate for the Senate in Illinois, the debates were not directly related to an election of office. At the time, Illinois' Senators were elected by the Illinois Legislators, so the purpose of the debates was to represent their parties (Lincoln for the Republicans and Douglas for the Democrats) in a bid to win control of the Illinois Legislature. The main issue discussed in all seven debates was slavery.
