Description Lincoln and the Convention of 1860 by Addison Gilbert Procter

Excerpt from Lincoln and the Convention of 1860: An Address Before the Chicago Historical Society, April 4, 1918 The year 1860 introduced into our national life Abraham Lincoln, one of the most remarkable, and certainly the most interesting character that had graced our history since the time of Washington. How this man, born to poverty and obscurity, whose life from its earliest days to middle age was one continuous struggle for a bare existence, - who came to the State of Illinois at the age of twenty-one a raw backwoodsman, clothed in the homespun that he had earned by the splitting of rails, - how this man could have so impressed himself on the people of that great State, and of this great Nation, as to become the chosen and accepted leader of a great national party at the most critical time in the affairs of this country, must always remain one of the interesting chapters of our political history. There met that year in the city of Chicago in the month of May a convention composed of 466 delegates from the Northern and border states of the South. They were men of strong convictions, who had met for a very decided purpose. Slavery, as a political power, had been growing more and more aggressive, and dictatorial.
