Abstract:Lincoln's relations with these territories, therefore, reveal much about both his general territorial policies and his willingness to adapt them to special circumstances. Lincoln proved willing to adapt his usual patronage policies to the special circumstances of New Mexico in 1861, appointing Democrats and residents to many crucial federal offices, which was not his usual practice in the western territories. However, Lincoln returned to his usual patronage policies after the end of the Confederate invasion and in his appointments to the newly-created Territory of Arizona in 1863. Lincoln's involvement in the political battles that ensued in New Mexico, and the attitudes toward him and his appointees in both New Mexico and Arizona exemplify the role Lincoln played in administering the western territories during the Civil War.
