    Exhaustive account of Illinois' 1856 Canvass

    Although somewhat tedious at times, Mr Guelzo's book not only offers firsthand accounts of the two Senatorial candidates, this work also sheds light on both men as people. Sprinkled throughout the book are tidbits of history, not necessarily related to the series of debates which crisscrossed the state, but are illustrative of the era and pertinent to the great debaters.

    Mr Guelzo does not "rewrite" history to meet today's social standards; he has crafted a book painting each man as they were seen, not as we would like to view them in hindsight. Interestingly, the author includes a side-by-side chart comparing each debate listing each accusation or claim made by one man and if applicable, a refutation or denial. Think sports box scores!

    The epitome of "inside politics," this book may not be interesting to the average reader who tires of political infighting. One thing it does prove: politics never change. Just as today, over a century ago, candidates played fast-and-loose with the facts, resorted to personal attacks and plied the electorate by exaggerating fears.
