A fascinating first-hand account of Lincoln's life on theEighth Circuit from 1854 to 1861, as told by one of hiscolleagues who travelled the circuit and tried cases withhim. Whitney also accompanied Lincoln during his campaign,the debates with Douglas, and the events prior to hisnomination. He reminisces about these events here in aneasy style that shows the warmth of his friendship withLincoln and illuminates the man behind the scenes in hisportrayal of Lincoln as a politician, Lincoln and slavery,Lincoln and labor, and Lincoln as President.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
