Going Head to Head with Rivals

The 1860 Republican Convention was held in the modern "Wigwam", Rm. 35, on October 28. Three rivals (William Henry Seward, Salmon Chase, and Edward Bates) came in to presuade us to vote for them.

However, just as they were giving their speeches, Abe Lincoln tried to sway voters to think of our second choice. Which in turn won Lincoln the election later on in the race. We learned what the canaidates would do for our country if they were the Republican nominee. Many had substantial resumes, but it was Lincoln's moderate point of view that won us in the end.
