Scope and content: "This work is the narrative of Abraham Lincoln's bid for the White House from 1858 through 1860. This work offers a day-by-day account that demonstrates how Lincoln's character, and his upholding of the Declaration of Independence, helped him triumph. Those traits were far more important than political machinations and backroom deals at the convention"--Provided by publisher
