MEN OF WAR-TIMES
This sale is for a 1892 edition of "ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND MEN OF WAR-TIMES" written by A. K. McClure.
YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
Mr. McClure, an associate of Abraham Lincoln, provides an intimate view of the President's relations with military men and top politicians, placing particular emphasis on the election campaigns of 1860 and 1864.
It was written to correct misconceptions of Abe Lincoln's character and actions during his time in the White House. A. K. McClure, a Republican powerbroker and later editor of the Philadelphia Times, reveals how Lincoln replaced Vice President Hannibal Hamlin with the southern Democrat Andrew Johnson on the 1864 ticket.
According to McClure, Lincoln kept his hand hidden in order not to offend Hamlin and his New England supporters.
In 1892, the publication of "Abraham Lincoln and Men of War-Times" caused an angry exchange of letters between McClure and the late President's secretary, John G. Nicolay. For all his nobility, Lincoln was a shrewd and cautious politician, running scared for reelection until major Union army victories in September 1864.
This book also provides historical information about the men closest to Lincoln during the War.
McClure writes candidly about Union military Generals WILLIAM TECUMSEH SHERMAN, ULYSSES S. GRANT, and GEORGE B. McCLELLAN.
Among the politicians discussed are Lincoln's predecessor, James Buchanan, who fixed the Southern policy that Lincoln followed until the war came; Salmon P. Chase, the annoyingly ambitious secretary of the treasury; Edwin M. Stanton, the moody secretary of war; and Thaddeus Stevens, the ferocious congressman whose relations with Lincoln were uneasy at best.
At its best, this book provides a memoir of Lincoln’s life, his political career, his characteristics and accomplishments.
Included are the hosts of many with whom he shared a variety of relationships, directly and indirectly.
A chapter is dedicated to the episode of JOHN BROWN'S RAID to whom Lincoln referred to as a "misguided fanatic."
Mr. McClure recognizes, as well, the unrewarded heroes: GEORGE G. MEADE, GEORGE H. THOMAS, FITZ JOHN PORTER, G.K. WARREN, AND D. C. BUELL. Concluding these 21 chapters are "Border Life in War Times" which introduce the first murmurs of the Civil War involving the heroes from the Confederate side to the "Pennsylvania Reserve Corps." The appendix consists of the exchange of correspondence pertaining to the conflict of the "NICOLAY-MCCLURE CONTROVERSY."
