Author Warren Bullabout this book: In defense of Abraham Lincoln

My second novel about Abraham Lincoln was based on his most famous trial. Unfortunately, this time Mr. Lincoln did not write about the trial. I had to rely solely on my own research.

In the course of my research, I came across one book about the trial that motivated me during the times when my energy ebbed and writing was hard work. (Those times always come when I am writing a novel) The book, that I will not dignify by mentioning its title, suggested that Lincoln had taken liberties with the arguments he used and the evidence he presented. That really pissed me off. The author had no believable sources for the information. Apparently the author hoped to get attention by presenting a controversial portrait of Lincoln that went against what most people believe.

My research suggested that Lincoln has been accused of legal malpractice, which is very different from evidence that he did. Anger is a powerful motivation.

Also, in this novel portrayed a slave-holder as a sympathetic character who could voice the opinions of pro-slavery people. That was hard to write.
