Lincoln is reputed to have said, 'I hope to have God on my side, but I must have Kentucky', acknowledging Kentucky's importance as the bellwether of the four loyal slave states and its significant role in the Union victory. Instead of providing readers with the typical biography, Lowell H. Harrison takes Lincoln's history one step further in Lincoln of Kentucky , analyzing the president's personal ties to his home state and the role that it played during the Civil War.
