Winner of the Barondess/Lincoln Award from The Civil War Round Table of New York

“Fascinating reading. . .this book eerily reflects some of today’s key issues.” – The New York Times Book Review

“This history aims at deconstructing Lincoln’s mythic reputation as the Great Emancipator to arrive at a more nuanced view . . . Pryor paints a provocative historical portrait while testing common assumptions about an American icon.” – The New Yorker
