BOOK 3

IN THE MAKING OF AMERICA SERIES

Considered by many to be our greatest president, the steady leader who guided America through its greatest constitutional crisis, the Great Emancipator who freed the slaves and paved the way for the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments. Hated by others as a tyrant who trampled the Constitution and failed to avert the war that left more than six hundred thousand American soldiers dead. Denounced by others who saw him as a secret racist and even a white supremacist who disliked slavery for economic reasons and had no wish to see blacks given equal footing with whites.

Here is Abraham Lincoln in all his complexity. Born in a cabin deep in the backwoods of Kentucky, growing up in a family considered “the poorest of the poor,” he rose to become a highly respected lawyer and statesman. He often used different arguments with different people depending upon the needs of the moment, leading one exasperated opponent to called him two-faced, and leaving others to marvel at his effectiveness as a politician and leader.

Love him or hate him, there is no denying that Abraham Lincoln forever altered the United States Constitution.

Abraham Lincoln is the third book in the Making of America series, continuing the themes began in the first two books. The first three books in the series—Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln—read together, tell the story of the first one hundred years of America’s constitutional history.
