History of the Republican Party

The Republican Party was formed in opposition to slavery. In 1856 the Party officially formed around the campaign of John C. Fremont for President. Four years later the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, was elected. The Civil War erupted during which Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. After the War Republicans worked to pass the Thirteenth Amendment that outlawed slavery, the Fourteenth Amendment that provided equal protection for all under the law and the Fifteenth Amendment that secured the right to vote for African Americans.

In 1896 the Republican Party became the first national party to support the right of women to vote. The first woman elected to Congress was a Republican, Jeanette Rankin from Montana in 1917.
