The fate of liberty : Abraham Lincoln and civil liberties by Mark E Neely( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Fate of Liberty, Mark Neely -- one of America's leading authorities on Lincoln -- explores the whole range of Lincoln's constitutional policies, examining his controversial restriction of civil liberties and the abuses of power that arose under martial law." "Neely depicts Lincoln's suspension of habeas corpus as a well-intentioned attempt to deal with a floodtide of unforeseen events -- from the disintegrating public order in the border states to the outcry against the first draft in U.S. history. Drawing on letters from prisoners, records of military courts and federal prisons, memoirs, and federal archives, he paints a vivid picture of how Lincoln responded to these problems, how his policies were actually executed, and the virulent political debates that followed. Lincoln emerges from this account with his legendary statesmanship intact -- mindful of political realities and prone to temper the sentences of military courts, concerned not with persecuting his opponents but with prosecuting the war efficiently." "Written with keen insight and an intimate grasp of the original sources, The Fate of Liberty brings to life the crises and chaos of a nation at war with itself, changing our understanding of Lincoln and his most controversial policies. Book jacket."--Jacket

The Lincoln papers : the story of the collection, with selections to July 4, 1861 by David C Mearns( Book )

1 edition published in 1948 in English and held by 1,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shortly after Lincoln's death, in 1865, all the papers which had accumulated in his office files during his presidency, plus many more which he had brought with him from Springfield, were removed from the White House by his son. From that time until July 26, 1947, when the collection was first opened to the public, these papers were shrouded in secrecy. In the introductory chapters of this book, the author presents the dramatic history of the collection, exploring and explaining the origins of the fabulous legend which grew up around it during the eighty-two years that it remained inaccessible to scholars and to the public. Following this introductory section is the main body of these two volumes- a selection of more than 500 vital documents from the monumental collection now in the Library of Congress, with notes when they are necessary to make the papers completely intelligible to the reader. This selection of papers goes up to July 4, 1861, covering Lincoln's early years, his political campaigns, and the first critical months of the presidency when the nation was torn by civil war."--Jacket
