"...Abraham Lincoln once asked 'Must a Government of necessity be too strong for the liberties of Its people? Or too weak to maintain Its own existence?' It's an eternal question faced by Democratic governments. One that faced Lincoln nowhere more clearly than in the State of Missouri. A State where much was at stake. A State deeply divided, where slavery was legal but yet a State that did not succeed. How did Abraham Lincoln and his officers meet this challenge? We will find out today when we talk with Dennis K. Boman, author of "Lincoln and Citizens' Rights in Civil War Missouri: Balancing Freedom and Security" that's our topic today, on Civil War Talk Radio."
