Excerpt from Political Debates Between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas in the Celebrated Campaign of 1858 in Illinois: Including the Preceding Speeches of Each at Chicago, Springfield, Etc;; Also the Two Great Speeches of Abraham Lincoln in Ohio in 1859These speeches made history in a very concrete way. Much grew out of the con?ict between these men whose political careers presented such striking contrasts, whose ambitions so con?icted, from the time when their paths first met, followed nearly parallel courses, separated, met again, and finally diverged so widely. The significance of it all is heightened when we remember that their rivalry was not political only - that it was carried into social life, into that odd, spirited courtship of Mary Todd, into all the relations of private life; that it was constantly acting, directly or indirectly, to modify each man's conduct to spur him and sting him on to more energetic action, or to Operate as a restraining in?uence when desperate chances were to be taken. The almost exact reversal of the relative positions occupied by these two men in the early fifties is made clear to us by the material of this book.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
