Abstract:

Abraham Lincoln--the great orator, the Emancipator, the savior of the Union, the martyr--rose from obscurity to lead the nation through its most tumultuous time. This book depicts all this amazing man's triumphs, insecurities, and crushing defeats; his early poverty and the ambition that propelled him out of it; the shaping of the man and his political philosophy by his youthful exposure to Christianity, slavery, and business; his tempestuous marriage and his fatherly love. We see him, elected to the presidency by a twist of fate, unswerving in the grim day-to-day conduct of the war as his vision and acumen led the country forward. Abraham Lincoln is an incisive study of a turning point in our history and a revealing portrait of its pivotal figure, his greatness etched more clearly in this touching human story.
