On March 20th 1854, 50 Men, 3 Women, and a child walked into the little white schoolhouse in Ripon Wisconsin divided as Democrats, Whigs, Socialists and Free Soilers each with individual beliefs, trusted sources, and values. When they emerged, they were united. United in Freedom. This was the offical birth of the Republican Party.
