Summary
  • Digitized materials of Abraham Lincoln's legal and political career at the Law Library of Congress. The collection offers a wealth of material that documents Lincoln's working life as a lawyer, politician, president, and human being come to life in all the conflicts, paradoxes, and seeming contractions that surround him
  • The Law Library of Congress's historical collection vividly illustrates three periods in which the law played a prominent part of the Lincoln era. First, Lincoln the Lawyer is comprised of works specifically on his work as a prominent Illinois lawyer. Second, Habeas Corpus and the War Powers of the President covers contemporary literature on Lincoln's controversial balancing of civil liberties against the demands of war aims. Finally, The Assassination: Trials contains period transcripts and reports of the trial of the surviving conspirators in the murder of the President and attempted murder of other public officials
