Warren BullISBN: 1592868312;
Book DescriptionAttorney Abraham Lincoln never before had to defend a case like this one. A visitor to Springfield vanishes. Then two brothers are accused of his brutal murder by their younger brother. The good citizens of Springfield seem set on a double hanging. It is up to Lincoln to save the brothers from the gallows. Abraham Lincoln for the Defense is based on an actual murder trial that so intrigued Lincoln that he was still writing about it five years later. Resolution of the case solved one mystery, but it created a greater question that, to this day, remains unanswered. The novel introduces the reader to Lincoln while he is a young attorney developing into the man who will become the great emancipator, a martyred president, and one of the most beloved figures in American history. Standing alone between the Trailor brothers and the hangman?s noose is Abraham Lincoln, for the defense.
