Posted at 3:06 PM, Jul 20, 2018

Dan Abrams is the chief legal affairs anchor at ABC News as well as the host of Live PD on A+E, the highest rated show on cable. He is also the founder of Abrams Media and the author of a new book, with co-author David Fisher, Lincoln’s Last Trial, which was an instant New York Times bestseller.


Lincoln’s Last Trial is one of the most colourful portrayals of Lincoln’s monumental skill as a litigator that exists, illuminating verbatim Lincoln’s interactions with witnesses, cross-examinations, and even courtroom downtime. Lincoln’s Last Trial connects the events of the trial and the complex web of relationships between those in the courtroom to known elements of Lincoln’s life outside the courtroom (his troubled marriage, brutal training as a self-taught, traveling new lawyer, and his time in the Black Hawk War) to create the fullest picture possible of one of the most examined men in American history.
