• Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold: Mr. Chase challenged Lincoln for the Republican nomination in 1864. Then, Chase pretended that he had accidentally promoted himself in a small magazine during the Civil War. In the magazine article, Chase made politically damaging criticisms – although mild and subtle compared to modern standards – of Lincoln’s handling of the war effort and his leadership. Rather than immediately fire Chase for embarrassing him, Lincoln waited some time. In 1864, Chase had written a letter of resignation over another matter, which Lincoln held onto until sometime after the presidency was secured. Lincoln then pulled it out and responded to that particular letter.
