Avlon reveals how Lincoln’s character informed his commitment to unconditional surrender followed by a magnanimous peace. The power of Lincoln’s personal example in the closing days of the war offers a portrait of a peacemaker.  Balancing moral courage with moderation, Lincoln believed that decency could be the most practical form of politics, but he understood that people were more inclined to listen to reason when greeted from a position of strength.
