Oregon Arena Endorses Judge [George] Williams

Subject

Elections

Description

The wartime politics of the state of Oregon, and of Washington and Idaho Territories, reflect the changing partisan alignments of the Civil War, as well as the strong presence of copperhead Democrats and rockribbed unionists. This interesting article about Oregon politics discusses this senatorial election, as well as others, during the war.


See C.W. Woodward, "The Rise and Early History of Political Parties in Oregon," Oregon Historical Quarterly, March 1912, Vol XIII, No. 1. This is a multi-part article, and this particular part mentions Judge George Williams.

Abstract

The Washington Statesman reports that the Oregon Arena favors the election of Judge [George] Williams as U.S. Senator from Oregon. He is a better alternative than his two abolitionist rivals.
