On February 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln is born in Hodgenville, Kentucky. His life is a journey of passing worlds. He begins his life in a cabin in the Kentucky wilderness and it ends as President of the United States. It would be understandable to find difficulty connecting a country boy to a educated politician, but Sidney Blumenthal attempts in the second volume of his biographical series on Lincoln. in the years he focuses on, 1849-1856, Lincoln begins making the fundamental life actions that bring about this transition. It is his career peak, it is the time he debates Stephen Douglas, it is the moment he has to do battle with his own soul as he soon must do battle for the nation’s soul.
