Publishers Weekly describes this book as “the most meticulously researched Lincoln biography ever written. Burlingame’s Lincoln comes alive as the author unfolds vast amounts of new research while breathing new life into familiar stories. It is the essential title for the bicentennial.” Publishers Weekly also notes, “The book need not be heard in one sitting. Each part stands alone.” Now what Doris Kearns Goodwin calls a “profound and masterful portrait” has been split into various chapters.

We must fight the devil with fire

Slasher Gaff Politico in Springfield (1837–1841): Lincoln’s studies lead to him becoming a successful lawyer in Illinois. He is often published anonymously during the political campaign of 1837 and his works include detailed rebuttals against opposing politicians. As a pivotal member of the Whig party, Lincoln openly begins to condemn mob violence and lynching, and begins to publicly denounce slavery in his speeches. This chapter details much of the wrongdoings and disorderly conduct that mark the political landscape of the time.

It would just kill me to marry Mary Todd

Courtship and Marriage (1840–1842): This chapter is entirely dedicated to Lincoln’s courtship and marriage to his wife, Mary Todd. His complete opposite, she is abusive, spiteful, argumentative and extremely thrifty. Many attribute Lincoln’s drive to become president to her, as even before their marriage, she referred to herself as a president’s wife and her disagreeable temperament often drove him out of the domestic realm and into the streets with the common people, making him extremely popular in the community.
