Thomas Gay b 8-1-37 in PEI info on time in wide awake politics
I am looking for information on my great x 3 grandfather's time in the wide awake political party for Lincoln's election in 1860. I have a letter written by Thomas that states that he was an officer in this party and went to alot of meeting and rallys. Since he lived in Illinois at the time I wonder if he actually met Lincoln.
Anyone have anything.
I am also trying to find the letters he wrote that he mentions are now in the Kansas Historical Department.
