If you are a Abraham Lincoln devotee (as I am) you will know the pivotal significance of these debates which revolved around the crucial issue of slavery. Wow. What would Lincoln think of what is happening in the U.S. today?

The first debate was in Ottawa, Illinois — NOT Canada. I marked it on the ‘map’ above.

Think. Reflect. Give thanks. Now THAT was A PRESIDENT.
