Lincoln at Peoria the turning point : getting right with the Declaration of Independence by Lewis E Lehrman ( )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To understand Abraham Lincoln, one must understand the extraordinary antislavery speech he delivered at Peoria on October 16, 1854. This three-hour address marked the turning point in Lincoln's political pilgrimage, dramatically altering his political career and, as a result, American history. Here, historian Levis E. Lehrman examines the seminal speech and its historical context, arguing that the divide between the statecraft of Lincoln's presidential years and his early legislative years originates with the speech at Peoria. Lincoln had substantially withdrawn from politics between 1849 and 1854, developing his Springfield law practice. Then in May 1854 Congress passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act, repealing the prohibition on slavery in that section of the Louisiana Territory--a restriction agreed by North and South in the Missouri Compromise of 1820. In response to this, Lincoln launched his antislavery campaign, delivering speeches in Springfield and Peoria, which catapulted him into national politics.--From publisher description

Lincoln "by littles" by Lewis E Lehrman ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Abraham Lincoln seldom got the chance to go to school. He went to school "by littles," he said, and received fewer than 12 months of schooling." "In the untrammeled interior of the mind's eye, young Lincoln followed his unrestrained desire to explore new intellectual worlds, even the world of American history, of politics, of law. There, in the frictionless world of thought and fantasy, young Abraham Lincoln found the freedom, the vocation, the solace he yearned for, unshackled from the irremediable, unrequited, hard labor of farmer and village artisan." "For Lincoln, there could be no retreat from the fundamental principles of the Declaration of Independence."

The American founders by Lewis E Lehrman ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Founders knew that their citizens and their government colleagues were imperfect. The Founders themselves were imperfect. In an imperfect world of imperfect people it could not be otherwise. Indeed, they could be petty. With the hindsight of the historian, their decisions may appear questionable. The Founders could be pessimistic about democracy. "Public affairs go on pretty much as usual: perpetual chicanery and rather more personal abuse than there used to be," wrote John Adams to Thomas Jefferson only weeks before they died. "Our American Chivalry is the worst in the world. It has no Laws, no bounds, no definitions; it seems to be all a Caprice." However, the American Founders were as able a political leadership as any in recorded history. Whatever their faults and fears, they acted, in peace and war, as if America s future were bright. Before leaving for his inauguration in 1789, President-elect Washington wrote: "My endeavours shall be unremittingly exerted (even at the hazard of former fame or present popularity) to extricate my country from the embarrassments in which it is entangled, through want of credit; and to establish, a general system of policy, which, if pursued will insure permanent felicity to the Commonwealth. I think I see a path, as clear and as direct as a ray of light, which leads to the attainment of that object. Nothing but harmony, honesty, industry, and frugality are necessary to make us a great and happy people."
