Austin TX and The Million Musician March

Last Saturday, we met on the state capital stairs to enjoy some music and a little walk around town.

The Republican National Convention of 1860

In 1856, the Republican Party met for the first time to put together a platform…

and ready itself for the first presidential run.  Chicago was chosen for the first convention.   The convention was held at the Wigwam,


a wooden structure built expressly for the convention.  The Republican Party appointed delegates at the state level.  These people were chosen to determine the best candidate to represent the party in the general election.
