Democratic National Convention reconvenes in Baltimore
The Democratic National Convention reconvened at the Front Street Theater in the morning with Caleb Cushing of Massachusetts continuing in the chair. When the roll was called it did not include representatives from the seven states which had bolted the Convention in Charleston in May. An heated debate on participation ensued over several days that ultimately led to an even larger defection of Southern representatives who left to hold their own convention. (By John Osborne)
