From the Publisher
Annotation In this insightfully powerful study of Lincoln and his presidency, William Lee Miller explores how President Lincoln rose to the challenge posed by an untenable moral dilemma: a nation founded on the principles of democracy and the rights of man, and the national shame of the institution of slavery. Miller shows how Lincoln, the right man at the right time, applied both his immense intelligence and his morals to the issue, resolving to preserve the union, even at the cost of a war that would divide it. In doing so, Miller, the author of the previous LINCOLN'S VIRTUES, shows how there is still room for more Lincoln books.
