September 29th – 1860 Electoral Map (Abstract)

Before “Fore score and seven years ago…” it was Lincoln v. Breckinridge v. Douglas v. Bell…I think we all remember how the 1860 presidential race panned out, Oregon’s first participation in the Electoral College. In the spirit of the season, let’s right this old electoral college map. We’ll meet outside of the Red Barn Grocery in the Whitaker at 6:30pm this Thursday and ride out to Claim 52 Brewing (1030 Tyinn St, Eugene) in West Eugene. We’ll complete the shape on the way back.
