Baltimore

, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Buffalo, and Dayton (Dayton, Ohio). In 1907 he played a match against World Chess Champion Emanuel Lasker for the title and lost eight games, winning none and drawing (draw (chess)) seven. They played their match in New York (New York City), Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Chicago, and Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee) from January 26 to April 8, 1907. The first national convention of the Democratic Party began in Baltimore on May 21, 1832 (1832 Democratic National Convention). In that year the infamous 2 3 rule was created, requiring a 2 3 vote to nominate a candidate, in order to show the party's unanimous support of Martin Van Buren for vice president. Although this rule was waived in the 1836 and 1840 conventions, in 1844 it was revived by opponents of former President Van Buren, who had the support of a majority, but not a super-majority, of the delegates, in order to prevent him from receiving the nomination. The rule then remained in place for almost the next hundred years, and often led to Democratic National Conventions which dragged on endlessly, most famously at the 1860 convention (1860 Democratic National Convention), when the convention adjourned in Charleston (Charleston, South Carolina) without making a choice and reconvening in separate groups a short time later, and the 1924 convention (1924 Democratic National Convention), when "Wets" and "Drys" deadlocked between preferred candidates Alfred E. Smith and William G. McAdoo for 103 ballots before finally agreeing on John W. Davis as a compromise candidate. At the 1912 convention (1912 Democratic National Convention), Champ Clark was the first person to receive a majority of the votes who did not go on to achieve a two-thirds vote and the nomination. The 2 3 rule was finally abolished in 1936, when the unanimity in favor of the renomination of President Franklin D. Roosevelt allowed it finally to be put to rest. In the years that followed only one convention (the 1952 Convention (1952 Democratic National Convention)) actually went beyond a single ballot, although this may be more attributable to changes in the nominating process itself than to the rules change. * ''Journal of William Maclay: United States Senator from Pennsylvania 1789-1791,'' Edited by Edgar S.

ISSN 0031-4528 Early life Guy was raised in Baltimore by his parents, Roland and Peggy Gardner. Roland was an abusive (child abuse) alcoholic (alcoholism) who beat Guy repeatedly. Guy worked hard in school to try to win his father's approval, but Roland instead lavished attention and compliments upon Guy's older brother, Mace. Guy's only escape at this time was ''General Glory'' comic books, going so far as to model his bowl haircut on Glory's sidekick, Ernie. ''Guy Gardner'' #11 (August 1993) A smaller set of purists even dislike the franchise relocations which took place in the 1950s and 1960s, beginning prior to the 1953 (1953 in baseball) season when the Braves (Atlanta Braves) shifted from Boston to Milwaukee, eventually moving to Atlanta in 1965. After the 1953 campaign, the Browns left St. Louis and moved to Baltimore, changing their name to the Orioles (Baltimore Orioles). The Athletics (Oakland Athletics) moved from Philadelphia (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) to Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri) in the mid-1950s and then on to Oakland (Oakland, California) in the late 1960s. In 1961 (1961 in baseball), the original Washington Senators (Minnesota Twins) moved to Minnesota and became the Twins, while a new team also called the Senators was added in Washington; this team left Washington in 1972 (1972 in baseball) to become the Texas Rangers (Texas Rangers (baseball)). In 2005, the Montreal Expos relocated to Washington, D.C. and changed their name to the Washington Nationals. The relocations which arguably rankle purists the most may be the 1957 (1957 in baseball) moves to California of the Brooklyn Dodgers (Los Angeles Dodgers) and New York Giants (San Francisco Giants). These purists see the era from 1920 (1920 in baseball) to 1952 (1952 in baseball) as a "Golden Age," in which the two major leagues fielded the same 16 teams with no additions, relocations, or major rule changes.
