This chapter talks about the second year of Abraham Lincoln's presidency. It explores how Abraham Lincoln was able to sustain his popularity among Americans through his advance administration programs. His opposition to slavery (through his enactment of the Emancipation Proclamation) won the hearts of many slaves, for they were suddenly freed from their oppressors.
