So with 2012 districts. Also I did it by looking at the county results and just guessed so don't expect every single district to be 100% accurate here, but I'd like to think its close.

That western MN district only had a handful of counties in it that actually voted and the blank district in it is entirely within a county that did no vote.

I love how it was really two separate elections at the same time as opposed to one 4-way election. Lincoln vs Douglas in one part of the country and Breckinridge vs Bell in another.

At the time, St. Louis had a bunch of German who didn't own slaves or want them.

Yet at the same time a fatal four way out west. Also shows the many different culture clashes in Missouri.

No popular voting back then. The State Senate voted on the presidential electors.

Missouri's congressional districts split FOUR ways? Not surprising, but I doubt that's happened before or since. (1824, maybe? Did Debs win any districts in 1912?)

I was gonna say there is a strong chance for Illinois 1824, but I just checked, they only had one district at the time. That was the only state where all 4 where competitive.

It is quite striking just how much support John C. Breckinridge had out west, even in the two officially free states of Oregon and California.

Also, how come neither Breckinridge or Bell win any districts in the southern parts of Illinois and Indiana which were settled by Southern descendants?

What I find kind of funny is that in, say, New York, it looks like Republicans had support in the rural areas while Democrats had support in New York City. However in Illinois, Republicans had support in Chicago, but downstate in the more rural areas was McClellan territory.

I think that has to do with Irish Catholic immigrants in NYC who were strongly Democratic (and anti-war, remember the draft riots) vs WASPs in Upstate NY, compared to German immigrants in Chicago who were strongly Republican vs people descended from Southerners and more culturally close to the South than anywhere else in the North in Downstate Illinois. In other words, the divides were cultural and ethnic, not urban vs rural.

A lot of southern folk moved out west to mine if I'm not mistaken. Also southern Illinois was Douglas's home turf

The Democratic machine in IL and IN probably backed Douglas heavily, unlike in PA.

Yay, Lincoln won my district!

(It has only gone Democratic once in the post-ACW era: 1964).

PA was the toughest to do, those gerrymanders are brutal.
