    The July 6, 1868 New York Times reported on the previous day's activities at the Democratic National Convention. The New York delegation was in high gear trying to derail the nomination of front-runner Pendleton.

    The reporter is suggesting that the convention was not able to unite around Pendleton, who probably represented the true majority of the party. Pendleton's Copperhead past and inflationary policies were problems.
