Fact of the Day: Lincoln Tennessee and Louisiana

National Union ticket Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson

While the U.S. Civil War wasn’t over by 1864, Louisiana and Tennessee were controlled by the union by that time and some were able to vote in the presidential election with both states voting for the Lincoln/Johnson ticket. Though Congress officially didn’t count the votes from the state’s electors, though it wouldn’t have been big enough to change the outcome.
