In St. Louis, Missouri, a unified anti-Republican ticket takes control of mayor's office and city council

After a hard-fought city election campaign in St. Louis, Missouri, the "Union Anti-Black Republican" ticket handily defeated the sitting Republicans. Daniel G. Taylor defeated Republican John How for mayor, while the unified anti-Republicans won almost every ward in the city.  Taylor was relatively successful over a difficult two years of civil war and was re-elected in 1862.  Republicans regained the mayor's office in 1863.  (By John Osborne)
