Today In History
April 231813: Library of Congress: U.S. congressman, senator, and presidential candidate Stephen A. Douglas was born in Brandon, Vermont. Short in stature but influential in Congress, Douglas was nicknamed the "Little Giant." In the Senate campaign of 1858, Republican hopeful Abraham Lincoln challenged Douglas to a series of seven debates, known today as the Lincoln-Douglas debates. Although Douglas won the election of 1858, he lost the presidential election of 1860 to Lincoln in a four-way race that included John Breckinridge and John Bell.
1791: James Buchanan, the 15th president of the United States, was born in Cove Gap, Pennsylvania.
