Summary
An Election Victory, Threats of Succession, and Appointing a Cabinet (1860-1861) Lincoln campaigns for the presidency and the new Republican Party struggles to win the popular support of ex-Whigs and disaffected Democrats. They must also placate the Seward and Chase camps with patronage promises, fend off charges of being the party of 'negro equality' and keep the abolitionist elements of their coalition in line. Since presidential candidates did not themselves campaign across the country, both Lincoln and Douglas rely on surrogates to get their messages out to the public. The chapter closes with Lincoln's election victory being dampened by threats of Southern secession. Now the president-elect, Lincoln must contend with meeting hordes of office seekers, delivering on patronage promises and filling his cabinet with an eye on regional political calculations, all while talk of secession is building momentum throughout the South. Navigating the minefield of both inter-party and regional politics, Lincoln begins to hand out patronage posts as well as fill his cabinet. His appointments of Cameron, Seward and Chase stir strong reactions both within and outside of the Republican Party, leaving few happy with Lincoln's choices. From the beginning, he struggles with Seward's ambition to control him and run the new administration. Secessionists begin taking over U.S. government facilities sparking outrage throughout the North, but Buchanan will not act decisively to remedy the situation, instead leaving it for Lincoln to deal with upon becoming president. As he and his family bid Springfield goodbye, Lincoln begins the delicate and momentous task of drafting his inaugural address
