Maryland Democrats meet in their nominating convention in Baltimore.

Maryland's Democratic Party met at their convention to nominate candidates for minor state offices and for the national convention upcoming in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The party was rebuilding after the trauma of the Civil War years and was gaining significant momentum that would before long return the state to Democratic control.  In addition to the nominations, resolutions were passed strongly supporting President Johnson and condemning the radicals in the United States Congress.  (By John Osborne)
