1854 · The Creation of the Republican Party

A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim that the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.

1863 · The Battle at Gettysburg

The Battle of Gettysburg involved the largest number of casualties of the entire Civil war and is often described as the war's turning point. Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers lost their lives during the three-day Battle. To honor the fallen soldiers, President Abraham Lincoln read his historic Gettysburg Address and helped those listening by redefining the purpose of the war.

Name Meaning

German: apparently a nicknane from a compound of Middle High German schoen(e) ‘beautiful’ + Bauer , perhaps in the sense ‘neighbor’ rather than ‘farmer’.
