the American political system. That it was also a triumph of one political party over another rarely gains mention, much less careful consideration.Here inadequate documentation is not a problem. The opportunity to understand Lincoln's political career before the l85os is probably greater than for any other of America's political giants. Illinois's voters showed their preference at the polls orally, and clerks carefully marked how each citizen voted. Therefore, we know in Lincoln's case precisely - by name - who voted for him and against him. Knowledge like this is unobtainable even for twentieth-century politicians or contemporary elections. We know for sure who voted for Lincoln, something we can never know in the cases of Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, or even Ronald Reagan.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
