Though they met at the White House several times and regularly exchanged views, Lincoln and Douglass never publicly argued. This is the Lincoln-Douglass debate that never happened: using the words from their correspondence and commentary, illustrated by period paintings, photographs, and sculptures, historian Harold Holzer brings Lincoln and Douglass face-to-face.
