Best Answer

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).
