Illinois Author, Chris DeRose, has released his new book this week about our very own Abraham Lincoln. DeRose’s new new book, “Congressman Lincoln: The Making of America’s Greatest President” (Simon & Schuster/Threshold) is now available.
This is the story of a master political strategist who maneuvered his way from the western frontier to Washington and his time as a member of the House of Representatives (1847-1849), where he first navigated the problem of slavery, grappled with issues of war and peace, and played an active role in the 1848 presidential campaign. Lincoln even wrestled with a nineteenth century version of the “fiscal cliff.”
When you get a chance, be sure to to check out the book’s website, www.lincolnforcongress.com, which is a fake campaign website for Lincoln’s 1846 race for House
