Read full description of the books Abraham Lincoln's Convention: Chicago 1860 (History Shorts / Original Voices):

Every president is shaped by his nominating convention. Lincoln’s in 1860 not only was one of the most important, but also the most exciting in America up to that point. In a three day, three-ballot carnival of music, fireworks, and politics drawing some 40,000 people, Lincoln and his friends outwitted the leading celebrities of their party, capturing the prize with nerve, ambition, and brass tacks. They played the kind of hardball politics that usually made reformers cringe. Still, it gave us one of the best presidents in American History.

In this History Short, we tell the story of Lincoln’s convention primarily through the eyes of newspaper writers – giving it the immediacy and excitement of the moment, with annotations, background, and updated formatting.
