Abe Lincoln in Illinois
Drama in 12 scenes. The play, which in 1939 was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for drama, concerns Lincoln's life and career--from his early, unsuccessful days as a postmaster in New Salem, Ill., through his initial forays into local politics, his relationship with Mary Todd, and his debates with Stephen Douglas, and culminates with his election to the presidency and imminent departure for Washington, D.C., 30 years later.
