Republican Party Born in Wisconsin

Dateline: Ripon, Wis., 1854. Our own state can take credit for bringing the G.O.P. into the world long ago. Read the recollections of one its founders and see a photograph of the humble school house where it was born in Wisconsin Local History and Biography Articles. Search the word "Republican" at WLHBA for many more contemporary sources on the birth of the party that would give us presidents Reagan and Bush.
