Book Beginnings on Friday: Lincoln's Melancholy

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme originally hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages but now hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Lincoln's Melancholy: How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness by Joshua Wolf Shenk

"In early May 1860, a week before the Republican party held its national convention in Chicago, the delegates from Illinois met in Decatur, a small town in the center of the state."

Hmm, 1860 - I wonder who's going to be nominated?

Lincoln is always a good subject. Of course we can all guess who will be nominated.
