Yes, the opening debater had 60 minutes. Then the other responded for 90 minutes, followed by a 30 minute conclusion. However, the debates were somewhat repetitious. The Trumbull charge was debated ad nauseum.

Isn't that the truth. We passed the height of civilization a few decades ago. :^) Seems like less and less people have the ability to reason any more. They just eat up what they're fed and don't even think about anything.

In case anyone doubted it, this is excellent proof that Douglas was not only a total racist (far more so than Lincoln) but, far from being the Little Giant, just another Pygmy. His racist followers are whooping it up at every racial slur, insult and attack.
