Lincoln for President: An Unlikely Candidate, an Audacious Strategy, and the Victory No One Saw Coming (Paperback)
Lincoln for President is a groundbreaking new look at the campaign that brought Lincoln to power. It was a campaign that hinged on back room deals and incredible mistakes, where torch-lit parades, raucous rallies, and colorful banners filled the streets, and for the first time a political convention collapsed around itself. And each step of the way Lincoln was making the most of every opportunity that emerged. Lincoln for President presents a new side of Lincoln, showing for the first time not a man above politics, but a brilliantly savvy politician who saw the opportunity to change history, and went after it with vigilance.
