Overview

 
       "Abraham Lincoln was a member of the Illinois Legislature from
        1834 to 1842 — one of the Long Nine, as the Sangamon County delegation
        was known, all its members being more than six feet tall. It was during
        these eight years that he came as close to scandal as he was ever to come
        in his public or private life. Did he, or did he not, engage in shameless
        logrolling to get the state capital moved to Springfield? This and other
        aspects of Lincoln's apprenticeship in the legislator . . . are thoroughly
        investigated."
        — Chicago Sun-Times
      "The wealth of detail it contains makes it a worthwhile addition
        to the study of Lincoln's legislative career."
        — Los Angeles Times
