  • Description or summary of the book: Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln in Pittsburgh and the Birth of the Republican Party Both accounts are clearly in error. It is true that Lin coln was expected to attend the convention but affairs in his home state evidently kept him away. On February 22, 1856, Lincoln Was in Decatur, Illinois, where certain newspaper editors were meeting to consolidate the Anti Nebraska forces and on whose recommendation a state convention was held at Bloomington on May 29th, follow ing, which organized the Republican party in Illinois. There can be hardly any doubt that Lincoln had been com municated with and was invited to attend the Pittsburgh convention. The statement in the Daily Pittsburgh Gazette that he was in attendance would hardly have been printed had this not been the case. Then the Decatur conference was broached to him and he decided to remain in his own state, and watch events there. It is extremely probable also that the Decatur conference was suggested by the ap pearance of the call for the Pittsburgh convention. This contention is the more plausible when it is borne in mind that the Chicago Tribune, which was represented in the Decatur conference, had its editor, J. C. Vaughan, in at tendance at the Pittsburgh convention. It may even be a fact that the originator of the Pittsburgh convention was in communication with the Illinois editors, and advised them to hold their conference for the purpose of organizing the Republican party in that state.
