Dan Abrams, chief legal affairs anchor for ABC News, gives a riveting talk about his new book, Lincoln’s Last Trial — the true story of Abraham Lincoln’s last murder trial, a case in which he had deep personal involvement, and which played out in the nation’s newspapers as he began his presidential campaign.
It’s a moment in history that shines a light on our legal system, as in this case Lincoln fought a legal battle that remains incredibly relevant today.
