  • President Reagan's Remarks at a Republican Party Rally in Missouri on September 14, 1988



Francis Preston Blair Jr. was the only Republican member of congress from a border state at the beginning of the American Civil War. However, he proposed that the state party instead merge with the Missouri Unionist Party.[1]

Blair and other Unionists in Missouri supported the removal of John C. Frémont's military command and the rescinding of his emancipation order. However, B. Gratz Brown, the former chair, supported Frémont. Blair and Brown disagreed on gradual compensated emancipation and slave colonization with Blair in support and Brown in opposition.[2]

The Radical Republicans, including Brown, held a separate convention in 1864. They sent an uncommitted delegation to the 1864 National Union National Convention which was seated. Brown wanted to send a delegation to Frémont's Radical Democracy convention.[3] This delegation was the only one to vote against Lincoln.[4]

The Radical wrote the state constiution in 1865, which emancipated slaves[5] while Blair returned to the Democratic Party.[6]

Members of the party left to form the Liberal Republican Party. Brown, their gubernatorial nominee, won the 1870 election.[7]
