November 6, 1860

As  we Americans have another chance to  vote for many leadership positions, though not the Presidency, let's remember a pretty big day in American history, 158 years ago. Some say the election of Lincoln was what caused the war, though I prefer to look at the reasons why his election would lead South Carolina and others to draft and announce ordinances of secession. That, however, is a topic for another discussion and time.
