America's maximum president, who rose to energy within the country's maximum hour of desire and whose imaginative and prescient observed the USA in the course of the Civil War

Abraham Lincoln towers above the others who've held the workplace of president—the icon of greatness, the pillar of power whose phrases certain up the nation's wounds. His presidency is the hinge on which American historical past pivots, the time whilst the younger republic collapsed of its personal contradictions and a brand new delivery of freedom, sanctified via blood, created the U.S. we all know this present day. His tale has been instructed repeatedly, yet by no means through a guy who himself sought the workplace of president and reflected the amazing tasks that include it.

George S. McGovern—a Midwesterner, former U.S. senator, presidential candidate, veteran, and historian by means of training—offers his certain perception into our 16th president. He exhibits how Lincoln occasionally went off track, fairly in his regulations on civil liberties, but additionally how he adjusted his attractions and remodeled the Civil conflict from a political dispute to an ethical campaign. McGovern's account reminds us why we carry Lincoln in such esteem and why he is still the normal in which all of his successors are measured.
