On this day, 150 years ago, people voted… and, laid-out on maps, the results were as follows (the top map is much more detailed, but I regret to say, I can’t find a better image):

In the Shenandoah Valley, the the popular vote was…

County Abraham Lincoln (Republican) John Bell (Constitutional Union) John C. Breckinridge (Southern Democrat) Stephen Douglas (Democrat)
Augusta 0 2553 218 1094
Berkeley 0 913 830 106
Clarke 0 288 335 49
Frederick 0 963 1315 66
Jefferson 0 959 458 440
Page 0 141 937 75
Rockbridge 0 1231 361 641
Rockingham 0 883 676 1354
Shenandoah 13 427 1883 170
Warren 0 276 462 54

Yes, on this day, 150 years ago, the votes were cast, but when did the citizens of the Valley learn about the election results… and what was their reaction?
