48 pages, December 1999

Author Cheryl Harness creates a vivid picture of the Springfield, Illinois years when Abe Lincoln met and married a pretty Kentucky lady, and became increasingly well known as a lawyer and politician. Then we learn of the tensions that were pulling the nation into a civil war as Lincoln was rising to become the President. We see Lincoln rising to the challenge of the crisis as he drafts the Emancipation Proclamation, and delivers the Gettysburg Address. Brilliantly-detailed maps and battle scenes add to our understanding of what the Civil War meant to the country, and why Abraham Lincoln will always be regarded as one of our greatest Presidents.
