About

When it began publication on November 26, 1860, the National Republican was the only Republican newspaper in Washington, D.C.  Its primary goals were to support Abraham Lincoln and the Republican candidates who followed him, to educate the public about the Republican platform, and to record the proceedings of Congress.  As a result, its pages were rich with details about the goings-on in the nation’s capital as well as nationwide political news related to the party.
