Abraham Lincoln visited Dayton, Ohio, on September 17, 1859, during his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. During his visit, he delivered a speech at the Montgomery County Courthouse, addressing issues such as slavery and the expansion of states into the Western territories. Lincoln’s eloquent and impassioned oratory in Dayton contributed to his growing reputation as a compelling speaker and played a role in shaping public opinion in the lead-up to the Civil War.
