The Life and Public Services of Hon. Abraham Lincoln

Title

The Life and Public Services of Hon. Abraham Lincoln

Description

"The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just." - Abraham Lincoln

This is one of several hurriedly prepared campaign biographies of Lincoln, who was not widely known when he became the Republican presidential candidate in May 1860. This 150-page version was later supplemented with a brief biography of Lincoln's running mate, Hannibal Hamlin of Maine, and a selection of Lincoln's speeches to create a longer 354-page version.
