By the Way, how is the weather down there in H-burg,Arkansas? Oh that's right, the city (by referendum, no less) ran your little group out of town, didn't they?

On the court square in Morganfield, there is a historical marker claiming that Union County is the only place in Kentucky that Lincoln campaigned while running for President.
Another little tidbit, about Mayfield, that I remember hearing from a long time Mayfield historian, the late Lon Carter Barton. In the election when Lincoln won the presidency, he didn't get a single vote in Graves County.

Poor Abe only got 1,364 votes in the entire state of Kentucky out of 146,216 cast! In all fairness, Kentucky did have a favorite son running that year in John Breckinridge, but even he finished second to John Bell.
