Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I got this tune (1840), from the Levy website.  A decent tune but I'm confused.

The 1839/40 Whig Convention was in Harrisburg, PA.  The Democratic Convention was in Baltimore.  Just a mistake by the publisher or is there something I don't know?  

Some historical insight needed.

Maybe it was the State convention. Did they have those?

I wondered about that but couldn't find anything.  But I tried again, yesterday, and found this........"State conventions were scheduled in each state for the week of February 22, and presidential electors in the several states were made responsible for encouraging local campaign activities. A huge national convention of Whig young men was planned for Baltimore in May.8"
