Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764945866, Paperback)Abraham Lincoln--with his likeness engraved upon everything from Mount Rushmore to the pennies in our pockets--looms large in the lore of the United States. We all recognize Honest Abe and can summarized major events of his life, but what details can we divulge? Most of us know that he engaged in debates with Stephen Douglas, but what more personal engagement pitted the politicians as rivals? We can recite the opening of the Gettysburg Address, yet who can expound upon Lincoln s more incendiary written words? Or his use of chicken bones in a court of law? Or his struggle with the Plug-Uglies?
