Description
In July 1862, Abraham Lincoln first spoke of freeing the slaves, and in January of the following year, he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Perhaps surprisingly, the man known as the Great Emancipator agonized over the decision up until the last moment. The co-author of the bestseller The Century focuses on these critical six months in an attempt to determine whether it was through personal achievement or historical determinism that the president freed the slaves. The Lincoln that emerges is an imperfect man with an unshakable determination to save a country he believed in, even as the outcome of the Civil War remained unknown.
