Tonight I have been reading about Lincoln. It was similar to what happened to Trump regarding the Electoral vote.
On November 8, after all the votes were in, the results showed that with over 400,000 popular votes, Lincoln had the electoral majority and therefore won the re-election. One of the reasons for this victory was the fall of Atlanta on September 1, 1865, when Confederate forces had finally surrendered to Union forces.
It was also the first time in history that several states allowed their citizens, who were serving as soldiers in the field, to cast ballots. It was these Army soldiers who helped to give Lincoln more than 70 percent of the vote.
Here is more interested facts about Lincoln in this article.
Did anyone else watch Mandalorian last night? I haven’t been loving the series but last night went a long way in fixing so many of the broken parts of the Star Wars world.
Plus very cool to take Ahsoka from the animation world and make her a live action character...
Let me check – oh yes, November is almost through.
Well, I guess then this might very well be the last load of sunny autumn pictures this time around. Fresh from my afternoon walk. Which was almost a bit chilly, but obviously nice.
