  • The 1864 United States general election elected the members of the 39th United States Congress. Nebraska joined the union during the 39th Congress. This election took place during the Third Party System and the Civil War, and the election was held shortly after the Union victory in the Battle of Atlanta. Republicans kept control of the Presidency and both houses of Congress.In the Presidential election, Republican President Abraham Lincoln defeated Democratic General George B. McClellan. Despite factionalism in the Republican Party and earlier concern about the progress of the war, Lincoln easily carried the popular vote and won the greatest share of the electoral vote since James Monroe won re-election unopposed in 1820. Lincoln's win made him the first President to win re-election since Andrew Jackson, and the first two-term President unaffiliated with the Democratic-Republican Party or the Democratic Party since George Washington. Lincoln, campaigning on the National Union ticket, chose War Democrat Andrew Johnson as his running mate, making this the last election in which a winning ticket was composed of members of two separate parties.Republicans made major gains in the House, turning their plurality into a majority.In the Senate, Republicans gained several seats, and continued to hold a commanding majority.
