The real Lincoln, says Georgia attorney Dickson in this punchy, source-referenced booklet, was quite different than the one portrayed in television, schoolbooks and motion pictures. The author marshals evidence from throughout his career to show that Abraham Lincoln was a hypocrite, an opportunist, an instigator and wager of ruthless war, and the nation's first political tyrant. Particularly critical of the 16th president’s savage war against the southern Confederacy, the author contends that Lincoln should be regarded as a dangerous forerunner of such liberal collectivists as Franklin Roosevelt. Based on the author’s address at the Seventh IHR Conference (1986).
