William C. Harris’ Lincoln’s Rise to the Presidency shows that Lincoln’s road to political success was far from easy—and that his reaction to events wasn’t always wise or his racial attitudes free of prejudice.

Although many have labeled Lincoln a moderate, Harris reveals that by his own admission a conservative who revered the Founders and advocated for adherence to the “old and tried.”

Harris portrays Lincoln as morally opposed to slavery but fundamentally conservative in his political strategy against it.
