About this item

Harold Holzer painstakingly retraces Lincoln's few public statements and numerous private initiatives during his President Elect period, revealing an astute political operator organizing his government, reaching out to the South, and drawing a line in the sand to prevent the spread of human slavery. Holzer shows Lincoln shrewdly and methodically manipulating friend and foe alike, while also taking the first cautious steps toward preparing both himself and his country for a grim trial by fire. Includes 16 pages of black and white photos.
