"Illinois Republican State Convention," New York Times, June 21, 1858
A relatively new yet increasingly influential political party in 1858, the Republicans attracted much attention from newspapers across the nation. In this article the New York Times reported the minutes of the Illinois Republican Convention, citing the party’s nominees for political office. The paper incorrectly named the party’s senatorial candidate “Alvain Lincoln,” but still recognized Abraham Lincoln's House Divided speech as an “eloquent” oration given before a packed auditorium of nearly fifteen thousand.
