    If you like reading about President Lincoln, you will enjoy this book.

    I enjoy reading about Lincoln. The author did her homework and gave a different perspective of the man. I would recommend this book to all. It is sensative, enlighting and deals more with the man than with his relations to his family, etc.

    Fascinating

    The Case of Abraham Lincoln is a fascinating glimpse into the political world and the criminal justice system of 1850s Illinois. In 1856 George Anderson is found murdered in his own back yard the prime suspects are Anderson's wife and nephew at the same time Abraham Lincoln is at the center of the forming of the Republican party and the rebirth of his political career. Julie M. Fenster sheds light on the two careers of Lincoln: lawyer and politican and the difficulties that Lincoln faced being both on the same time. Great details on how trails were conducted in the mid-nineteenth century and how political campigns were run.
