Southern Perceptions of Abraham Lincoln Peter Carmichael talked about Southern perceptions of Abraham Lincoln after the 1860 election. With four candidates on the ballot, Abraham Lincoln won the 1860 presidential election with forty percent of the popular vote, mainly from Northern voters. Seven states would vote in favor of secession before his inauguration. Professor Carmichael focused on Southern culture and the effect of the Southern conception of honor. He responded to questions from members of the audience.

“Southern Perceptions of Lincoln in the Wake of the 1860 Election” was a Thursday address at the 15th annual Lincoln Forum, “The Coming of the Civil War: Enter Lincoln, Exit the South,” held at the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg. close
