This chapter discusses the nomination and reelection of Lincoln as President of the United States. It starts by citing events that predicted Lincoln's nomination by the Republican Party. His popularity, especially with the Army, guaranteed his reelection and the other candidates up for nomination could not really compete with him. The predictions came true, as Lincoln was elected for another term in the 1864 US Presidential elections.

Keywords: Abraham Lincoln; election; popularity; Army; American politics; Republican Party
