Michigan's President Johnson supporting National Union convention had met the previous day and nominated former Union Army corps commanders Major General Alpheus Starkey Williams as their candidate for governor.  When Michigan's Democratic Party assembled, they endorsed this and all the other nominations of the National Union.  Williams was handily defeated in the November election, however.  (By John Osborne)
