[1]   Detroit Daily Advertiser, August 29, 1856. The occasion was a giant Republican ``concourse'' with a ``free public table,'' parades, eight bands, and the Battle Creek Glee Club providing entertainment. Four speakers stands were going simultaneously during the afternoon, so that the Advertiser lamented its single stenographic reporter assigned to report the speeches and added, ``Our reporter stuck to the main stand. . . .'' Lincoln was preceded by Zachariah Chandler of Detroit and introduced by Hezekiah G. Wells of the Republican executive committee.
