History Presentation on Presidential Elections in Madison County, Il
"Fake News, Lying Politicians, and Dirty Tricks: Madison County on the Eve of the Presidential Election, 1860 (2020?)"
This presentation will discuss the political campaign tactics and behavior of politicians and voters in Madison County leading up to the momentous Presidential election of 1860. We will explore how the American electoral system, frayed by uncompromising positions, heated rhetoric, and outrageous behavior, nearly collapsed. By examining political behavior in Illinois and Madison County prior to the 1860 election, we will draw comparisons and mark differences with our own political behavior on the eve of the 2020 Presidential election.
