Lincoln's last trial : the murder case that propelled him to the presidency by Dan Abrams( Book )

11 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 1,499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of the summer of 1859, twenty-two-year-old Peachy Quinn Harrison went on trial for murder in Springfield, Illinois. Abraham Lincoln, who had been involved in more than three thousand cases -- including more than twenty-five murder trials -- during his two-decades-long career, was hired to defend him. Lincoln's debates with Senator Stephen Douglas the previous fall had gained him a national following, transforming the little-known, self-taught lawyer into a respected politician. He was being urged to make a dark-horse run for the presidency in 1860. Taking this case involved great risk. His reputation was untarnished, but should he lose this trial, should Harrison be convicted of murder, the spotlight now focused so brightly on him might be dimmed. He had won his most recent murder trial with a daring and dramatic maneuver that had become a local legend, but another had ended with his client dangling from the end of a rope. The case also posed painful personal challenges for Lincoln. The murder victim had trained for the law in his office and Lincoln had been his friend and his mentor. The accused killer, the young man Lincoln would defend, was the son of a close friend and loyal supporter. And to win this trial he would have to form an unholy allegiance with a longtime enemy, a revivalist preacher he had twice run against for political office -- and who had bitterly slandered Lincoln as an "infidel ... too lacking in faith" to be elected. Dan Abrams and David Fisher capture the presidential hopeful's dramatic courtroom confrontations in vivid detail as he fights for his client but also for his own blossoming political future

John Adams under fire : the Founding Father's fight for justice in the Boston Massacre murder trial by Dan Abrams( Book )

7 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History remembers John Adams as a Founding Father and our country's second president. But in the tense years before the American Revolution, he was still just a lawyer, fighting for justice in one of the most explosive murder trials of the era. On the night of March 5, 1770, shots were fired by British soldiers on the streets of Boston, killing five civilians. The Boston Massacre has often been called the first shots of the American Revolution. As John Adams would later remember, "On that night the formation of American independence was born." Yet when the British soldiers faced trial, the young lawyer Adams was determined that they receive a fair one. He volunteered to represent them, keeping the peace in a powder keg of a colony, and in the process created some of the foundations of what would become United States law

Dan Abrams draws upon study after study and years of legal experience to explain why women are better than men in just about every way.

Lincoln's last trial young readers' edition by Dan Abrams( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

At the end of the summer of 1859, twenty-two-year-old Peachy Quinn Harrison was accused of murder in Springfield, Illinois. The man hired to save his life was none other than self-taught lawyer Abraham Lincoln. But what would be Lincoln's last case before his presidency posed many personal challenges. The murder victim had been an apprentice in Lincoln's law office. The accused murderer was the son of a close friend and loyal supporter. To win the trial, Lincoln would have to form an unholy allegiance with a longtime enemy, a revivalist preacher he had twice run against for political office. And with the rise of newspapers, the nation was watching the presidential hopeful very, very closely. Based on actual court transcripts that include Lincoln's own words and adapted from Dan Abrams and David Fisher's New York Times bestseller, Lincoln's Last Trial is both a twisty, turny true crime story and a vivid picture of Abraham Lincoln on the eve of his presidency. This thrilling, never-before-seen look at one of the most beloved figures in US history will captivate both young readers and adults alike
