as Candidate for President of the United States

Together With his June 15, 1864 West Point Oration


1864 imprint, 6 x 9 1/4, 8 pages. Published by E.P. Patten, 35 Park Row, New York City.

GENERAL MC CLELLAN'S LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE

Orange, N.J., Sept. 8, 1864

Gentlemen: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter informing me of my nomination by the Democratic National Convention, recently assembled at Chicago, as their candidate at the next election for President of the United States.

It is unnecessary for me to say to you that this nomination comes to me unsought.

I am happy to know that when the nomination was made, the record of my public life was kept in view.

The effect of long and varied service in the army during war and peace has been to strengthen and make indelible in my mind and heart the love and reverence for the Union, Constitution, laws, and flag of our country, impressed upon me in early youth.

These feelings have thus far guided the course of my life, and must continue to do so to its end.

The existence of more than one government over the region which once owned our flag is incompatible with the peace, the power, and the happiness of the people.

The preservation of our Union was the sole avowed object for which the war was commenced. It should have been conducted for that object only, and in accordance with those principles which I took occasion to declare when in active service.

Thus conducted, the work of reconciliation would have been easy, and we might have reaped the benefits of our many victories on land and sea.

The Union was originally formed by the exercise of a spirit of conciliation and compromise. To restore and preserve it, the same spirit must prevail in our councils, and in the hearts of the people.

The reestablishment of the Union in all its integrity is, and must continue to be, the indispensable condition in any settlement. So soon as it is clear, or even probable, that our present adversaries are ready for peace, upon the basis of Union, we should exhaust all the resources of statesmanship practiced by civilized nations, and taught by the traditions of the American people, consistent with the honor and interest of the country, to secure such....... Much more excellent content in General McClellan's acceptance letter, and the complete content of his oration at West Point on June 15th, 1864.

Age toning and light wear. There is a very small area of paper loss at the bottom of the last page (pages 7 & 8). This does not affect any of the content. Important General McClellan and 1864 presidential campaign imprint.
