Summary
"Here historian John C. Waugh takes us on Abraham Lincoln's road to the Civil War. From Lincoln's first public rejection of slavery to his secret arrival in the capital, from his stunning debates with Stephen Douglas to his contemplative moments considering the state of the country he loved, Waugh shows us America as Lincoln saw it and as Lincoln knew it. Drawing heavily on Lincoln's own words, Waugh shows us his emergence onto the political scene and the evolution of his beliefs about the Union, the Constitution, democracy, slavery, and civil war. And by letting Lincoln in large part tell his own story, Waugh brings us ever closer to understanding this mysterious, complicated, truly great man."--BOOK JACKET
