Mozart Hall Democrats nominate Fernando Wood for mayor of New York City

Fernando Wood had served as Mayor of New York City from 1854 until his narrow electoral loss in 1857.  His Democratic organization, the Mozart Hall, nominated him unanimously for another term at their convention.  In the 1860 elections, he was once again elected and led the city's opposition to the policies of President Lincoln during the Civil War.  (By John Osborne)
