Data SourcesOhio Elects the President, p. 59.
Description The American Party held its third and last National Convention in Grand Army Hall in Washington DC. This was a nativist party which ran under various party labels in the northern states.

When the convention assembled, there were 126 delegates; among them were 65 from NY and 15 from CA. Delegates from the other states bolted the convention when it appeared that NY and CA intended to vote together on all matters and control the convention. By the time the presidential balloting began, there were only 64 delegates present.

The convention nominated James L. Curtis NY for President and James R. Greer TN for VP. Greer declined to run, and Peter D. Wigginton CA was chosen as his replacement. Wigginton was the chair of the CA delegation at the national convention.
