Today, May 18 in 1860, the Republican National Convention nominated Abraham Lincoln for President of the United States.

The convention was held in Chicago where, after the decision for the venue was made, no large enough meeting hall to house it could be found.

Quickly, a wooden frame assembly hall to seat 10,000 delegates, guests, and observers, was constructed – it was to be known as the “Wigwam.

Despite its rushed erection, the building proved fit for the purpose with much lauded acoustics and great lines of sight from most seats.

After the elimination of a stout list of candidates many delegates switched to Lincoln and he won the party’s nomination against William H. Seward on the third ballot.

It took until noon for the result to reach Springfield, IL where Abraham Lincoln awaited the convention’s outcome and in the hours to come, large groups of people gathered in front of Lincoln’s modest two story house.

During a short speech in response to a serenade, Abraham Lincoln apologized for not being able to invite the whole crowd into the limited space of his home to which, according to the Illinois State Journal, one of the onlookers replied:

“We will give you a larger house on the fourth of next March'”
