About the Author:

Don E. Fehrenbacher (1920-1997), whom the historian George Fredrickson called “the foremost Lincoln scholar of his generation,” was professor of history at Stanford University and the author of several books, including Prelude to Greatness: Lincoln in the 1850’s, the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Dred Scott Case: Its Significance in American Law and Politics, and Lincoln in Text and Context. Shortly before his death, he was awarded the 1997 Lincoln Prize, the nation’s highest annual award for Civil War studies.

Harold Holzer serves as co-chairman of the U.S. Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, lectures widely on Lincoln and the Civil War, and is a frequent Lincoln commentator on television. He has written, co-written, and edited more than thirty books, including The Lincoln Image (1984), Lincoln on Democracy (1990), Lincoln at Cooper Union: The Speech That Made Abraham Lincoln President (2004), and Lincoln President-Elect: Abraham Lincoln and the Great Secession Winter 1860-1861 (2008).
