Welcome to the Official Party of Lincoln. We were established as the Republican Party in Chicago, Illinois, May 17, 1860.
Abraham Lincoln, who was a member of the party originally known as the Republican Party, was elected as the first representative of the party to win election to the White House.
The party began to be known as the Party of Lincoln for that reason.
In the early 1900's the Republican Party and Democratic Party changed positions.
The title "Party of Lincoln" began to be used and has been used for decades, as nothing more than a political prop by the Republican Party, which had departed from the tenets of democracy and freedom for all Americans, established in our original platform.
The modern day Republican Party does not nearly represent the values set forth in our original platform.
Obviously, a few things have changed but the basic tenets of democracy and freedom for all, a welcoming environment for those seeking what America provides.
