In 1866, there was an election for the new President-Vice President Ticket in the Confederacy. The Confederacy did not allow Presidents to serve multiple terms, but instead one six year term. This occurred before the adoption of any real political parties in the Confederacy. Also, this was the first election where the capital was Montgomery, Alabama instead of Richmond, Virginia (it was moved to be more central). Of the 13 states, Alexander Stephens with running mate Thomas Bocock won seven, as well as 79 of the 129 electoral votes, making him become the Second President of the Confederate States of America.
