Our History. Our Legacy.

Founding and Growth (1900′s-1990)

Six score and seven years ago, since the election of Abraham Lincoln (1860), our forefathers, along with the present day survivors, brought forth in this County of Shelby, a solid Republican Party, one now dedicated to those interested in good government. It is altogether fitting and proper that those past servants of our Party be recognized.

Robert Church, Jr., later Republican National Committeeman, founded the Lincoln League in 1916. In later years the leader of the Lincoln League, and thus the Republican Party in Shelby County, was George W. Lee, a local Black leader who had risen through the ranks in World War I to become a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. He was a delegate to nearly every Republican National convention from 1920 to 1960.
