Description
Party History

Many Democrats were very unhappy by the Party’s endorsement of the Liberal Republican ticket and Horace Greeley in particular. Blanton Duncan was a Democratic leader who was particularly unhappy with the national convention. Duncan corresponded with Democrats around the nation. Anti-Greeley Democrats decided to hold a “Straight-Out Democratic National Convention” to set forth a second, truly Democratic, ticket.
