"Douglas-Lincoln," (St. Louis) Missouri Republican, September 2, 1858
Journalists followed Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas throughout the Illinois senatorial debates of 1858 and wired reports to their editors. The Missouri Republican supported Douglas. After the second debate, the Republican published an article that blasted the “Black Republicans” and downplayed the rupture between Douglas and President James Buchanan. The piece characterized “Black Republicanism” as “heresy” and accused Lincoln of representing a party “full of hatred” that would destroy the nation. The articled urged readers to elect Douglas and keep the Union safe. (By David Park)
