The government is about to fall into our hands -- My troubles have just commenced -- We won't jump that ditch -- A masterly inactivity -- The tug has to come -- Very much like the critter -- If we surrender it is the end of us -- Will you hazard so desperate a step? -- With a task before me -- No occasion for any excitement -- I would rather be assassinated -- Plain as a turnpike road -- The ultimate justice of the people -- Epilogue : mystic chords of memory.
Lincoln President-Elect is the first book to concentrate on Lincoln's public stance and private agony during these months and on the momentous consequences when he first demonstrated his determination and leadership. Holzer recasts Lincoln from an isolated prairie politician yet to establish his greatness to a skillful shaper of men and opinion and an immovable friend of freedom at a decisive moment when allegiance to the founding credo "all men are created equal" might well have been sacrificed. -- BOOK JACKET.
