Team of rivals the political genius of Abraham Lincoln. Part 2

On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry. Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war. That Lincoln succeeded was the result of a character that had been forged by life experiences that raised him above his more privileged and accomplished rivals. He won because hepossessed an extraordinary ability to put himself in the place of other men, to experience what they were feeling, to understand their motives and desires. This capacity enabled President Lincoln to bring his disgruntled opponents together, create the most unusual cabinet in history, and marshal their talents to preserve the Union and win the war.

  • "When the 1860 Republican National Convention chose Abraham Lincoln over three seasoned politicians, his rivals were shocked and humiliated. Lincoln immediately went about mending fences by inviting them to join his cabinet. Historian Doris Kearns Godwin reveals how Lincoln brilliantly converted former political foes and used them to strengthen his presidency."
