The Rare Book & Manuscript Library is very pleased to host Bloomington-based lawyer and Lincoln-expert, Guy Fraker for a talk about his new book.
Lincoln's Ladder to the Presidency: the Eighth Judicial Circuit (Southern Illinois University Pr., 2012) traces the formation of Lincoln's political network to the obscure Springfield, Illinois attorney's work "riding" a downstate court circuit.
Copies of Fraker's book will be available for purchase and signing at the talk.
