A bright, solid book.; B&W Photographs, graphs; 10 X 6.50 X 1.30 inches; 320 pages; From the DJ flap: "In the midst of America's deadliest war, Lincoln sat the storm center of a hurricane of blood and grief, deciding the fate of men sentenced for crimes including desertion, spying, sabotage, murder, rape - the whole gamut of evil. He balanced sternness and compassion while pressed on one side by weeping relatives begging for mercy, and on the other by military leaders demanding severe discipline for an unruly citizen army. The man many have described as America's greatest president approached his thankless task with a unique blend of humor, compassion, practicality and, as Lowry describes it, "a kind of weary joy."
