1854 · The Creation of the Republican Party

Age 3

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

Age 12

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.

To honor the fallen soldiers, President Abraham Lincoln read his historic Gettysburg Address and helped those listening by redefining the purpose of the war.
