According to conventional wisdom, Abraham Lincoln spent most of his law career raise debt and representing railroads, and this heart made him inept at defending clients in slaying processes. In this unprecedented study of Lincoln’s hustler processes, George Dekle disproves these popular notions, showing that Lincoln was first and foremost a trial advocate. Through careful examination of Lincoln’s slaying processes and interpretation of his legal skills, Dekle demonstrates that hustler law was an important segment of Lincoln's practice, and that he was quite capable of defending head accused of murder, trying approximately one such sample per ranginess. Dekle begins by presenting the viewpoints of not only those who see Lincoln as a perfect advocate whose only catch-22 was his shortcoming to represent the reversal of a sample but also those who believe Lincoln was a less-than-honest legal hack. The author invites readers to compare these wildly different pigeonholes with the body Lincoln revealed in each sample described in the preprint, including an axe murder do in which Lincoln assisted the doing, a poisoning sample he refused to prosecute for $200 but defended for $75, and a sample he won by proving that a supposed murder victim was actually still alive. For each sample Dekle covers, he first tells the stories of the vendettas, hassles, and insults that led to murder and other hustler activity, giving a gripping view of the seamy front of life in nineteenth-century Illinois. Then he traces the course of the pretrial contention, describes the trials and the various plans of attack employed in the doing and rejoinder, and critiques the doing of both Lincoln and his adversaries. Dekle concludes that Lincoln was a competent, active hustler trial advocate who knew the law, could argue it effectively to both judge and tribunal, and would use all lawful powers to defend clients whether he believed them to be innocent or guilty. His trial chalk up spectacles Lincoln to have been a formidable rejoinder advocate who won many seemingly hopeless processes through his makings as a courtroom expert, cross-examiner, and lecturer. Hustler defendants who could retain Lincoln as a rejoinder advocate were well represented, and hustler rejoinder lawyers who sought him as co-counsel were well served. Providing insight into both Lincoln’s legal career and the civilization in which he practiced law, Prairie Defender resolves a major misconception concerning one of our most important historical figures.  .
