Lincoln and Chief Justice Taney by James F. Simon

Lincoln and Chief Justice Taney: Slavery, Secession and the President’s War Powers by James F. Simon
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 310 MB
Overview: The clashes between President Abraham Lincoln and Chief Justice Roger B. Taney over slavery, secession, and Lincoln’s constitutional war powers went to the heart of Lincoln’s presidency.
Lincoln and Taney’s bitter disagreements began with Taney’s Dred Scott opinion in 1857, when the chief justice declared that the Constitution did not grant the black man any rights that the white man was bound to honor. Lincoln attacked the opinion as a warped judicial interpretation of the Framers’ intent and accused Taney of being a member of a pro-slavery national conspiracy.
In his first inaugural address, Lincoln insisted that the South had no legal right to secede. Taney, who administered the oath of office to Lincoln, believed that the South’s secession was legal and in the best interests of both sections of the country.
Once the war began, Lincoln broadly interpreted his constitutional powers as commander-in-chief to prosecute the war, suspending habeas corpus, censoring the press, and allowing military courts to try civilians for treason. Taney vociferously disagreed, accusing Lincoln of assuming dictatorial powers in violation of the Constitution. Lincoln ignored Taney’s protests and exercised his presidential authority fearlessly, determined that he would preserve the Union.
James F. Simon skillfully brings to life this compelling story of the momentous tug-of-war between the president and the chief justice during the worst crisis in the nation’s history.

The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln by Larry Tagg

The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln: The Story of America’s Most Reviled President by Larry Tagg
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 6 MB
Overview: Today, Abraham Lincoln is a beloved American icon, widely considered to be our best president. It was not always so. Larry Tagg’s The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln is the first study of its kind to concentrate on what Lincoln’s contemporaries actually thought of him during his lifetime. Be forewarned: your preconceived notions are about to be shattered.
Torn by civil war, the era in which our sixteenth president lived and governed was the most rough-and-tumble in the history of American politics. The violence of the criticism aimed at Lincoln by the great men of his time on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line is simply startling. Indeed, the breadth and depth of the spectacular prejudice against him is often shocking for its cruelty, intensity, and unrelenting vigor. The plain truth is that Mr. Lincoln was deeply reviled by many who knew him personally, and by hundreds of thousands who only knew of him.

Overview: Here is the most detailed and most engagingly narrated history to date of the legendary two-year facedown and shootout in Lincoln.

"In research, writing, and interpretation, High Noon in Lincoln is a superb book. It is one of the best books (maybe the best) ever written on a violent episode in the West."–Richard Maxwell Brown author of Strain of Violence: Historical Studies of American Violence and Vigilantism

"A masterful account of the actual facts of the gory Lincoln County War and the role of Billy the Kid. . . . Utley separates the truth from legend without detracting from the gripping suspense and human interest of the story."–Alvin M. Josephy, Jr.
