Lincoln and the South

Lincoln and the South

by Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield Randall
     
 

The author shows why the border states, and especially Kentucky, were so important in Lincoln's strategy for fighting the war, and why he was always ready to ignore the abolitionists, his cabinet, his party majority in Congress or any other group in the North if by so doing he could strengthen the Union cause in Missouri, Maryland, or Illinois.
