Description
The Anti-Masonic Party in the Van Buren Administration

During the Van Buren administration, the Anti-Masonic Party continued to disintegrate as its leaders moved one by one to the Whig Party. Anti-Masonic leaders called a conference in Washington DC in 9/1837, where they agreed to maintain the party.

When a third national nominating convention was called for 1838, newspapers advocating a Harrison candidacy rejoiced. At that time, Whig leaders were mostly divided between Clay and Webster as the Whig nominee of 1840. Many Whigs supported Harrison and saw the AMP convention as a way of introducing his name back into contention [Vermont Watchman, 7/23/1838].
