What is 1864?


Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

The editorial appeared in June of 1864 and was critical of the National Union ticket of Lincoln (the “rail-splitter”) and Johnson (the “tailor”). In spite of this, the Union campaigns in the Civil War were doing quite well in the lead-up to the election, and Lincoln’s main Republican challenger John C. Fremont withdrew in September, owing to the need to unite the Republicans, as the Democratic platform wished to re-institute slavery.

      I had my pre-FJ score for Gary incorrect. Thanks for bringing the possible error to my attention.

      Been a rough week for me, I’ve been battling an ugly cold.

  3. I hope you feel better soon, Andy.

  4. All three are supposed to get this Final right. I’m very disappointed!

      In my chats with othe very good and great players this evening, the general consensus was that this was not an easy Final, and I think that anyone who got it right deserves kudos.

  5. We did came close to a tiebreaker round.

  6. Andy, I’m sorry that you’ve been battling a cold, but I didn’t know that you had the Pre-Final score wrong, and I hope you feel better. Anyways, I’m actually happy that Gary won,because he was able to make up for what happened to him in his quarter-final game.

    • Andy Saunders | February 22, 2017 at 10:47 pm |

      That’s okay, William.

      I welcome corrections. It’s how I know that people are actually reading what I write!

  7. Thanks Andy, and I’m also sorry that you’ve been having a rough week. Everybody has them, and I’ve had a few of my own in my life.
