On January 29, 1936, the U.S. Baseball Hall of Fame elected its first members
in Cooperstown,
New York: Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Christy Matthewson and Walter Johnson.

The Hall of Fame actually had its beginnings in 1935, when plans were made
to build a museum devoted to baseball and its 100-year history. A private organization based in Cooperstown called the Clark Foundation thought
that establishing the Baseball Hall of Fame in their city would help to
reinvigorate the area’s Depression-ravaged economy by attracting
tourists.

LINCOLN ELECTED PRESIDENT ON THIS DAY 1860

Related image

On  this day in 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected the 16th president of the
United States over a deeply divided Democratic Party, becoming the first Republican to win the presidency. Lincoln received only 40 percent of the
popular vote but handily defeated the three other candidates: Southern
Democrat
John C. Breckinridge, Constitutional Union candidate John Bell,
and Northern Democrat Stephen Douglas, a U.S. senator for
Illinois.

Lincoln, a Kentucky-born lawyer and former Whig representative to
Congress, first gained national stature during his campaign against
Stephen Douglas of Illinois for a
U.S. Senate seat in 1858.

    1860 Election Facts:

  • Welcome: Minnesota and Oregon become states during this
    election cycle
  • Original 13 States control fewer than 50% of total Electoral
    Votes for first time
  • Lincoln received only about 40% of the popular vote in a
    divided nation on the brink of Civil War
  • New Jersey: Douglas won the popular vote on a Fusion
    slate comprised of 3 of his electors and 2 each for
    Breckinridge and Bell. Apparently –
    the history is a bit
    murky – some voters received a ballot with seven Douglas
    electors, taking votes from the Breckinridge/Bell electors.
    Bottom line – the 3 Douglas electors on the Fusion slate
    received the most votes, while the most votes for the four
    remaining spots went to Lincoln’s electors.
  • Issues of the Day: Slavery (Dred Scott decision, Secession)
