Both of these counties voted for Abraham Lincoln in 1864, and George Wallace in 1968.

Well, they voted for Breckenridge in 1860, so I'm guessing a fair number were at war or prison in 1864.  Or maybe Union soldiers made up the vote in 1864.

There's a reason why we in Missouri call Hickman County the doormat of Missouri. This may be it.

After reading a little on the internet, Fulton county in particular has an unpleasant history with plenty of lynchings and violence, so it's not much surprise that it was Wallace territory.
