On Nov 6, 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected president. Francis Grierson, a young boy at the time, wrote, "At last the day of election came the city woke in a sort of dream...there were rumours, impossible rumours, that the tall, gaunt Rail-Splitter from up there at Springfield, Illinois was elected." Lincoln bested Stephen Douglas in St. Louis by 9,946 to 700. ©Missouri History Museum abrahamlincolnSusan Knauff
