"The vivid, behind-the-scenes story of perhaps the most consequential political moment in America's history-Abraham Lincoln's epochal nomination as the Republican Party's candidate for president in 1860. Illinois lawyer Abraham Lincoln had a record of political failure. In 1858, he had lost a celebrated Senate bid against incumbent Stephen Douglas, his second failed Senate run, and had not held public office since one term in Congress a decade earlier. As the Republican National Convention opened in mid-May 1860 in Chicago, New York Senator William Seward was the overwhelming favorite for the presidential nomination, with Salmon Chase and Edward Bates in the running. Few thought Lincoln stood a chance-though Illinois judge David Davis had come to fight for his friend anyway. Such was the political landscape as Edward Achorn's The Lincoln Miracle opens on Saturday, May 12, 1860. Chronicling the tense political drama as it unfolded over the next six days, Achorn explores the genius of Lincoln's quiet strategy, the vicious partisanship tearing apart America over racism and slavery, and booming Chicago as a symbol of the modernization transforming the nation. Closely following the shrewd insiders on hand, from Seward power broker Thurlow Weed to editor Horace Greeley, Achorn brings alive arguably the most important political turning point in our history. From smoky hotel rooms to night marches by the Wide Awakes, the new Republican youth organization, to fiery speeches on the floor of the giant convention center called The Wigwam, Achorn portrays a political climate even more contentious than our own today, out of which the seemingly impossible long shot prevailed. As atmospheric and original as Achorn's previous Every Drop of Blood, The Lincoln Miracle is essential reading for any Lincoln aficionado as it is for anyone who cares about our nation's history"--… (mere)

The man that thinks that Lincoln quietly sat down and gathered his robes about him, waiting for the people to call on him, has a very erroneous knowledge of Lincoln. He was always calculating, and planning ahead. His ambition was a little engine that knew no rest. - William H. Herndon
It is my belief that if all the other causes had existed as they did exist, and Judge Davis had not lived, Mr. Lincoln would never have been nominated, and, consequently, never would have been elected President of the United States. - Leonard Swett
Without Chicago, we should have had no Wigwam; without the Wigwam we should have had no Abraham Lincoln; without a Lincoln we might have to day had no Government. - Frederick Douglass
Had Abraham Lincoln died in the spring of 1860, on the eve of his first presidential nomination, he would be a forgotten man. - Mark E. Neely Jr.

(Prologue) The young reporter stood on a platform alone, waiting for the train that would take him down the iron rails southeast to Springfield, twenty miles away.
The long depot at the corner of Canal and Van Buren Streets was crawling with people on May 12, 1860.
