  1. 150 years ago today . . . in the news . . . Richmond Daily Dispatch, November 9, 1860. Mr. Lincoln advanced as rapidly as possible to the voting table, and handed in his ticket, upon which, it is hardly necessary to say, all the names were Republicans. The only alteration he made was the cutting off of his own name at the top, where it had been printed.–As he emerged, after voting, from the temporary enclosure, the manifestations of enthusiasm were frequent, and Mr. Lincoln, removing his hat, bowed in acknowledgment.
