The difficulties occasioned by the American Civil War, notably the federal blockade of the southern states, the Trent crisis of late 1861, concern for the security of Canada, the French intervention in Mexico, ensured that his term, extended by one year until 1864, was peculiarly demanding.” VG. $350
