1852 Democratic National Convention


1852 Democratic National Convention

The 1852 Democratic National Convention was held at Maryland Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. This convention is notable for the hostility between groups of the party, divided over the Compromise of 1850. The convention was called to order by Democratic National Committee chairman Benjamin F. Hallett. Romulus M. Saunders served as the temporary convention chairman and John W. Davis served as the permanent convention president. Franklin Pierce, a dark horse candidate, beat out more notable members of the party such as Lewis Cass of Michigan, future president James Buchanan, and Stephen A. Douglas. Franklin Pierce finally made it to election for presidency on the 49th ballot as a dark horse candidate. William R. King was chosen as the vice presidential candidate.
