“Can It Happen Again? How the Republican Nomination Was Stolen for Lincoln in 1860” Discussion to be at Public Library


May 14, 2016 - 9:00 AM


MOUNT VERNON - The most consequential political party convention in American history was the one the Republicans held in Chicago in May 1860 which resulted in the brokered and therefore surprise nomination of a dark horse candidate -- Abraham Lincoln.

Exactly 156 years after the nomination, author Peter Dickson will present a timely discussion, “Can It Happen Again? How the Republican Nomination Was Stolen for Lincoln in 1860,” on Wednesday, May 18, 7:00 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street.

Two men played pivotal roles in stealing that nomination away from the more famous New York Senator William Seward--David Davis (Kenyon College Class 1832) and Columbus Delano (famous Mount Vernon lawyer and Kenyon Trustee). Lincoln scholars do not like to admit that a Christ-like martyr for a great cause, such as Lincoln, could have had a Kingmaker. However, Dickson, author of “Lincoln, His Kingmaker Davis and the "Stolen" Republican Nomination of 1860,” will present documentation that exposes the truth about Lincoln's deepest fears during the convention and Davis' insider-dealing and other "dirty tricks” despite Lincoln's instructions to refrain from such. He will also show copies of eight telegrams sent to Lincoln insisting that he stay at his Springfield home and keep his mouth shut until Davis could tell him the price they paid to get that nomination.

The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call the main library at 740-392-(BOOK) 2665 Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net. (lpm)
