1854 · Creation of the Republican Party

A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim 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.

Name Meaning

Irish (especially Ulster): Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Cú Uladh, a patronymic from the personal name Cú Uladh ‘hound of Ulster’. Compare McNally , which is from Mac Con Uladh, genitive form of the same name, and McColl , with which the name seems to have sometimes been confused. The name McCullough has sometimes been associated with Gaelic cullach ‘wild boar’, and some families in County Sligo translated it into English as Boar. However, Mac Cú Uladh is the more likely explanation.
