Henry Emery and the Abraham Lincoln/Stephen Douglas debates Part IV

More photos from the Lincoln/Douglas debate in Galesburg, Illinois.

Here is a photo of the building from which Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas debated on October 7, 1858.

Upon the 100th anniversary of the debates, two plaques were placed on either side of the doorway to commemorate the occasion.

Here is a closeup of Abraham Lincoln's plaque.

And a closeup of Stephen Douglas' plaque.
