Synopsis: An in-depth story of Abraham Lincoln becoming a surveyor, lawyer and politician - focused in one central Illinois county (Logan), which he help name in 1839 while serving in the Illinois State Legislature - and in one of its towns (Lincoln), which was named for him by his friends in 1853, long before he became nationally famous. This treatise has been researched and compiled by Paul Beaver, a Lincoln College Professor Emeritus of History, who has had access to documentation in regards to political, legal, business and family information related to Mr. Lincoln as he worked and grew in stature in this county, some of which reveal new insights as well as correcting some long-held old information about one of the greatest - if not greatest - individuals that the United States of America has ever known. Dr. Thomas F. Schwartz writes: "Full of useful information and local lore, Paul Beaver's Abraham Lincoln in Logan County, Illinois, 1834-1860 is sure to please readers. Lincoln's vital presence in revealed in the family stories and the documentary records of Logan County." Dr. Mark A. Plummer writes: "Paul Beaver, in his ABRAHAM LINCOLN IN LOGAN COUNTY, ILLINOIS, presents us with a useful history that transcends from Judge Lawrence Stringer's HISTORY OF LOGAN COUNTY (1911) to a more comprehensive and documented story. The endnotes and bibliography comprise a major contribution." Guy C. Fraker writes: "Beginning with Lawrence Stringer, continuing with James Hickey, Paul Beaver has refined and honed this story with careful research and a unique collection of illustrations. Anyone interested in Lincoln's path to the presidency will enjoy this book." Finally, Daniel Weinberg of Chicago's Abraham Lincoln Book Shop, writes: "Besides plugging a hole in the Lincoln story, Paul Beaver's account of Logan County serves as a exemplar of how Illinois itself influenced and shaped the future President."
