Chase had carried hisideals, only to find that there, as in law, they were heavyhandicaps.
Neither of the two great parties, Whigs norDemocrats, — he had tried them both, — was prepared, atthe time, for anti-slavery principles. So, foregoing thepreferment that his talents might have won for him insuch powerful organizations. Chase had affiliated himself,usually as a master mind, with the unsubstantial factions—Liberty-men, Independent Democrats, Free-soilers, andwhat not — which struggled one after another to give thecause a political standing.
A dead-lock in joint session of the Ohio legis-lature, during the winter of , had left the balanceof power in the hands of two Independent Free-soilers;and so skilfully had they exercised it as to compel theelection of Mr. Chase to the United States Senate.
There,political accident as he was, without experience in pub-lic office, and without recognition by either of the twoparties which divided legislative business, he had beforethe expiration of his term taken rank as a leader amongsuch anti-slavery giants as Hale, Simmer, Seward, Wade,Hamlin, and Fessenden.

Verified Purchase. In a day in which all of us are desperately seeking for answers to complex political, social and economic issues, Rothschild's work of cream rises to the top. AR presents Lincoln as a man's man, a backwoods, tree chopping, rail splitting, wrestling and fighting Champion of men. At times while reading I wondered, "this is too good to be true. No one was or is this good of a human being".
Lincoln, Master of Men: A Study in Character - Scholar's Choice Edition by Alonzo Rothschild
Then, AR reveals some small tidbit or fact which tips the scales back towards thinking "well, maybe Lincoln was the master of men". The chapters are a bit long, and the kindle edition I purchased was a bit choppy. Look beyond those small inconveniences and read it. This book was written in so is a little difficult to read.
1911 Encyclopædia Britannica/Lincoln, Abraham
But well worth it. In there were still people alive who remembered Lincoln so the author had eyewitness accounts to draw from. There is a lot of detail about some members of Lincoln's cabinet which was very interesting. There is very little about Lincoln's personal life. This concentrates on Lincoln's political life.
Many people have written about A Lincoln but this is the best study of the man I have ever read. I have no doubt many current historians have "borrowed" from this book for theirs. It was written within 50 years of Lincolns death so people alive at that time had some memory of the events surrounding and encompassing his presidency.
