  United States presidential election, 1864 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The U.S. presidential election of 1864 was conducted during the Civil War, and as such the Confederate states did not participate.
It was widely assumed—and indeed evident in the soldiers' corps—that those serving in the Army were going to turn out heavily for Lincoln; the expectation was validated as Lincoln received more than 70% of the soldiers' vote.
Abraham Lincoln was renominated by the Republican Party, which changed its name for the 1864 election to the “National Union Party”.

In 1864 Brazil helped the leader of Uruguay's Colorado Party to oust his Blanco Party opponent, whereupon the dictator of Paraguay, Francisco Solano López, believing that the regional balance of power was threatened, went to war with Brazil.
Although López had successfully invaded the Brazilian province of Mato Grosso in late 1864, his invasion of Uruguay in 1865 was a disaster.

MD5 is an algorithm for computing a 128 bit "digest" of arbitrary- length data, with a high degree of confidence that any alterations in the data will be reflected in alterations in the digest.
Because the addition or deletion of trailing white space will result in a different digest, either the quoted-printable or base64 algorithm should be employed as a content-transfer-encoding when the Content-MD5 field is used.
Processing the Content-MD5 field If the Content-MD5 field is present, a recipient user agent may choose to use it to verify that the contents of a MIME entity have not been modified during transport.
