New York, New York, U.S.A.: Hill & Wang Pub, 2007. First edition. 8vo. Cloth binding, 420 pp. In this remarkable reappraisal of Lincoln—winner of the 2007 Heartland Prize—historian Orville Vernon Burton shows how the president's "Southernness" empowered him to conduct a civil war that redefined freedom as a personal right protected by the rule of law. Abolishing slavery, the age's most extraordinary accomplishment, was not its most profound, argues Burton; the enduring legacy of the age was inscribing personal liberty into the nation's millennial aspirations. Repaired tear to top of dust jacket, else a brand new book, unread. New in very good dustjacket, protected with a mylar cover.. First Edition. Hard Cover. New/Very Good. 8vo.
