Baringer, and Avery Craven], commemorating the centennial of the first Lincoln election, were presented originally at the fourth annual Civil War Conference at Gettysburg College in November 1960. Each of these essays accepts the verdict that by the campaign of 1860 some form of crisis was inevitable. Nowhere do they insist that all choices had been eliminated except those which the North and South followed. Concerned broadly with the issues and events of the campaign, these essays dwell emphatically on the importance of slavery to the sectional conflict and to its impact on American politics."
