♥ Book Title : Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation
☯ Full Synopsis : "One of the nation's foremost Lincoln scholars offers an authoritative consideration of the document that represents the most far-reaching accomplishment of our greatest president. No single official paper in American history changed the lives of as many Americans as Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. But no American document has been held up to greater suspicion. Its bland and lawyerlike language is unfavorably compared to the soaring eloquence of the Gettysburg Address and the Second Inaugural; its effectiveness in freeing the slaves has been dismissed as a legal illusion. And for some African-Americans the Proclamation raises doubts about Lincoln himself. Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation dispels the myths and mistakes surrounding the Emancipation Proclamation and skillfully reconstructs how America's greatest president wrote the greatest American proclamation of freedom."Article| Allen C. Guelzo| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : LINCOLN\S HAT
☯ Full Synopsis : "Many have forgotten how unpopular Abraham Lincoln was in his time. He had to sneak into Washington for his first inauguration to avoid a reported assassination plot. He was opposed for his second term during the Civil War by one of his key generals. His resort to humorous parables at stressful moments exasperated his followers and detractors alike. Claims circulated that his lineage was partially Black and that he fed his pets at the dinner table with a gold fork. He was a lightning rod for haters of every stripe, who didn't hesitate to circulate outrageous fictions about him. The story of Lincoln's Hat could have been one such fiction. Had his enemies known the contents of the congratulatory letter the sixteenth president received from the International Workingmen's Association of Europe upon his reelection, they easily could have conflated it with his support for the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments to paint him as a "socialist," and the Civil War as his "war between the classes." The congratulatory letter is a historical fact, and all the new civil rights legislation was the partisan work of radicals, albeit the radical Republicans of the day. Lincoln's successor, Andrew Johnson, didn't enforce the Constitutional Amendments, nor for that matter did anyone else for the next seventy-five years. Ironically, had the Amendments been enforced, a strident movement like the Tea Party of today might have arisen back then among the Democrats, when the country was even more divided than it is now."Article| David Selcer| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Lincoln's Last Trial
☯ Full Synopsis : "An instant New York Times bestseller, Lincoln's Last Trial is the true story of Abraham Lincoln's last murder trial, a case in which he had a deep personal involvement--and which played out in the nation's newspapers as he began his presidential campaign. At the end of the summer of 1859, twenty-two-year-old Peachy Quinn Harrison went on trial for murder in Springfield, Illinois. Abraham Lincoln, who had been involved in more than three thousand cases--including more than twenty-five murder trials--during his two-decades-long career, was hired to defend him. This was to be his last great case as a lawyer. What normally would have been a local case took on momentous meaning. Lincoln's debates with Senator Stephen Douglas the previous fall had gained him a national following, transforming the little-known, self-taught lawyer into a respected politician. He was being urged to make a dark-horse run for the presidency in 1860. Taking this case involved great risk. His reputation was untarnished, but should he lose this trial, should Harrison be convicted of murder, the spotlight now focused so brightly on him might be dimmed. He had won his most recent murder trial with a daring and dramatic maneuver that had become a local legend, but another had ended with his client dangling from the end of a rope. The case posed painful personal challenges for Lincoln. The murder victim had trained for the law in his office, and Lincoln had been his friend and his mentor. His accused killer, the young man Lincoln would defend, was the son of a close friend and loyal supporter. And to win this trial he would have to form an unholy allegiance with a longtime enemy, a revivalist preacher he had twice run against for political office--and who had bitterly slandered Lincoln as an "infidel...too lacking in faith" to be elected. Lincoln's Last Trial captures the presidential hopeful's dramatic courtroom confrontations in vivid detail as he fights for his client--but also for his own blossoming political future. It is a moment in history that shines a light on our legal system, as in this case Lincoln fought a legal battle that remains incredibly relevant today."Article| Dan Abrams| Statement ..."
