Lincoln and the Bluegrass : slavery and civil war in Kentucky by William H Townsend( Book )

27 editions published between 1955 and 2018 in English and held by 1,394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bluegrass region of Kentucky was the only part of the slaveholding South that Abraham Lincoln knew intimately. Even before the young Illinois lawyer had married a daughter of one of Lexington's leading statesmen, he had taken Robert Todd's close friend, Henry Clay, as his political idol. Mary Todd, who had grown to young womanhood in Lexington, widened Lincoln's circle of acquaintances in the Bluegrass to include such diverse personalitites as Judge George Robertson, Lincoln's counsel, who supported emancipation in the abstract but indignantly demanded that the President protect his slave property; the fiery Cassius M. Clay, who urged Lincoln to proclaim immediate emancipation and who raised a motley battalion in Washington, D.C., to defend the Captial; Dr. Robert J. Breckinridge, the doughty Presbyterian minister who refused to ask special treatment for the members of his family in the Confederacy; and the Doctor's nephew, Vice-President John C. Breckinridge, who rejected a demand that he use his position to thwart Lincoln's election but immediately took up arms agains him."--Page 2 of cover
