From the 1860 Republican Party Platform

The 1860 Republican Party Platform which stated the following:
Resolved. That we, the delegated representatives of the Republican electors of the 
United States, in Convention assembled, in discharge of the duty we owe to our constituents 
and our country, unite in the following:
4. That the maintenance inviolate of the rights of the States, and 
especially the right of each State to order and control its own domestic institutions 
according to its own judgment exclusively, is essential to that balance of powers on 
which the perfection and endurance of our political fabric depends, and we denounce 
the lawless invasion by armed force of the soil of any State or Territory, no matter 
under what pretext, as among the gravest of crimes. 
That is until Abraham Lincoln is elected President!
