The Republican Party

The Republican Party traces its origins to the mid-19th century, when it came together as a coalition of political groups. It ascended rapidly with the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, then fell into bitter disputes between moderates and radicals over the question of slavery in the wake of the Civil War. After failing to capture the White House for a long stretch of the 20th century, the party reframed its message for a new generation. This led to the rise of Richard Nixon, Ronald Regan, and others who have helped carry the party forward to the present day.
