Book Summary:

Lincoln's 1858 race against Stephen Douglas for the Senate was the only documented campaign of his political career. In The Art of the Campaign: How Lincoln Won the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, Kevin O'Brien shows how Lincoln, far from running a timid or reactive race, as convention has it, crafted a bold strategy against his famous adversary. In framing Douglas as an "instrument" for the spread of slavery, despite his professions of neutrality, Lincoln left no stone unturned. He was equally comfortable parsing the dangerous logic of Douglas's ideas or mocking his personal obtuseness on slavery, drawing out the alarming implications of the Dred Scott decision or reinterpreting Douglas's off-hand remarks and campaign jokes. O'Brien follows the course of the Senate campaign as it unfolded, culminating in the joint debates. He shows how Lincoln, after a shaky start, won the debates by every measure except the obvious one. Lincoln lost the election, narrowly and arbitrarily, but by outperforming Douglas handily, he vaulted to national prominence. Armed with a new speaking style, unadorned and "honest," Lincoln also reinforced that slavery was not just a southern problem, as many antislavery northerners believed. If Douglas was "preparing the public mind" for the further spread of slavery, as Lincoln charged in the Galesburg debate, then the North was in danger of becoming an accomplice. Ideas would have to combat ideas, and there could be no middle ground. The Art of the Campaign reveals a campaigner who, by the end of the debates, ranged freely from historical principles to minute details of personality and style to define "the real issue" between the two candidates. Lincoln's performance is a sharp contrast to the superficial and predictable political campaigns of our own day.

Book Summary:

Excerpt from Lincoln-Douglas Debate American history, reveals human nature deal= ing with momentous problems, and illuminates the methods by which the great art of public speech is used to influence public conduct in a great epoch. Because Lincoln and Douglas, in the course of the debate, each made references to their past records, it is necessary to have in mind the brief sketch, here given, of the life history of each. And because the debate was on the questions of slavery, and referred so frequently to the history of that question, it is necessary to here give first a very brief review of at least those facts, in the history of slavery, to which the speakers refer. The speakers inferred that their hearers had fresh in memory the recent history of slavery agitation and legislation, and, accordingly, we here offer a narration of such facts as are necessary to understand the mean ing of the debate, before giving the debate it self. Therefore, this volume presents, first, a brief sketch of each debater, just sufficient to under stand the references in the debate; second, just enough of the history of the slavery question to comprehend the allusions of the speakers; third, the circumstances attending the debate along with the chief arguments and replies of each speaker; fourth, the major and important portions of the speeches of Lincoln and of Doug las are given in the exact words of the speaker.

Book Summary:

Excerpt from The Lincoln-Douglas Debates of 1858 A new edition of the speeches made by Stephen A. Douglas and Abraham Lincoln in the set debate during the Illinois senatorial canvass of 1858 would seem a worthy and appropriate part of the general commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of that event. While the campaign was local in its inception, it became national in its sigui ficance and in its results. The issues as brought out in the debate, especially in the speech of Douglas at Freeport, widened, if they did not open, the breach between him and the southern Democrats, made a Split in the convention of 1860 a foregone conclusion, and thereby paved the way for Republican success and the election of Abraham Lin coln to the presidency. The debate also marked the high - tide of the stump method of campaigning; it furnishes, through the unusual space given to it in news paper reports, an Opportunity to study this unique phe nomenon of frontier life; while the increasing number of printing presses, the extension of the mail routes, and consequent change in campaign methods, lend to this canvass the melancholy interest of a passing Show. The speeches themselves are of a high order of debate, and of unusual import; those of Douglas set forth his untenable position and his impossible theory in the clearest terms; those of Lincoln state the arguments of the new Repub lican party as they had not been outlined before; and the combined effect of the whole is a survey of the political aspect of the day not to be found elsewhere.
