About this item

In this careful, balanced look at Lincoln's stirring 1854 Peoria, Ill., speech, Lehrman finds a "prelude to greatness" that put the little–known lawyer and politician on the path to national prominence while laying the intellectual groundwork for his presidency. Building on the drama of Lincoln's anti–slavery efforts through subsequent years, culminating in his ascent to the presidency, Lehrman's detailed chronicle lays out the case that from his earliest public forays, Lincoln was no ordinary leader.
