   The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery is an insightful and powerful book about Abraham Lincoln and his emergence to become one of the nation’s greatest presidents.  The novel begins with Lincoln's youth and follows his career and rise to the Presidency of a divided nation.  As the 16th President of the United States and Commander- in-Chief, Abraham Lincoln emerged as a leader that fully embraced the rights and freedoms of African American's as U.S. Citizens and the abolishment of slavery within the nation.  Foner’s Lincoln is a leader capable of moral and political growth with an ability to engage allies and critics.
