Looking for Lincoln in Illinois
Full Product Description
Exploring the intriguing question of whether Lincoln and Mormon founder Joseph Smith ever met, the book reveals that they traveled the same routes and likely stayed at the same inns. The book also includes colorful and engaging looks at key figures such as Brigham Young, various Mormon apostles, Mormon gunsmith Jonathan Browning, and more. For example, the author relates that Lincoln visited Browning in Quincy, and upon learning that Browning had once traded a gun for a Bible, quipped that it was like "turning swords into plowshares." Anyone inspired by Lincoln, as well as Mormon and Illinois history enthusiasts, will appreciate this look back at a longpast, but not forgotten, landscape.
