Caption: President Woodrow Wilson formally begins his re-election campaign on Sept. 24, 1916, from the front porch of his summer home near Trenton, N.J. Wilson followed tradition in not having attended the party convention in St. Louis that renominated him. He was asleep in the White House when he learned of the renomination in the early hours of June 16, 1916. His complete statement was, "I am very grateful to my generous friends." He went back to bed. Wilson won his second term by defeating Republican Charles Evans Hughes of New York, an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. (Post-Dispatch)
