An original account of the 7 decades, 1830 through 1900, that pivoted around the presidency of Abraham Lincoln. Abolishing slavery, the ageís most extraordinary accomplishment, was not its most profound triumph. The enduring legacy of the Age of Lincoln was inscribing, with the 13th, 14th, and 15th amend., personal liberty into the nationís Constitution. Here, Burton argues that the presidentís authentic southernness empowered him to conduct a civil war that redefined freedom as a personal right to be extended to all Americans. Yet even as the anti-democratic policies of Jim Crow began to settle over the land, Lincolnís people put their faith in the law and continued to work on redrawing freedomís boundaries.
