Each had energetically sought to become president during the turbulent 1850s as the conflict over slavery led inexorably to secession from the Union and civil war. It was the result of a man who had been forged by life events that made him stand out from his more privileged and accomplished peers. Abraham Lincoln won because he possessed an extraordinary ability to put his own feelings into the minds of others, to feel what they felt, to understand their motives, and to desire what they desired.

4 – North and South
