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.
