Annotation

[1]   ALS, RPB. Stephen A. Hurlbut of Belvidere, Illinois, was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives in 1858 and again in 1859, but entered the army as a brigadier general in May 1861.

[2]   The unprecedented action of ninety-four county Republican conventions endorsing Lincoln as the choice of the party was the ``remonstrance against outside intermeddling'' on the part of Horace Greeley and other Eastern Republicans, who advocated that Douglas should receive Republican support in his fight with the administration forces (Chicago Tribune, June 14, 1858).
