Political journalist and author Fred Martin has devoted the last 20 years to researching Abraham Lincoln at the Library of Congress, state historical societies, archives, and libraries across the nation. In his new book, Martin relates the story of the most important election in the history of the United States, when the fate of the Union and the emancipation of slaves were at stake. Step by step, he goes through Lincoln's presidency, and shows how Lincoln mastered language, and how his words changed public perspective, drove home emancipation, reignited the ideals of freedom, and saved democratic government.
