A major division in the Democratic Party, along with the establishment of a fourth party made up largely of former Whigs, assured a Republican victory in the presidential election of 1860. The contest was decided in the electoral college, not on the strength of the popular vote. This Republican party election ticket is part of the outstanding collection of Lincolniana donated by Alfred Whital Stern.
