The War Worth Fighting

Richard J. Carwardine

University Press of Florida

This chapter presents Lincoln as a top manager—a visible hand. He won the presidency, used public opinion effectively, confronted the limits of power, and effectively coerced northerners into a public acceptance of cause. Lincoln was keenly aware of what he could control and was perceptive about how to go about what he wanted.
