Jaffa Crisis of the House Divided is the standard historiography of the Lincoln Douglas debates H. An extremely rich but dense look at the Lincoln Douglas debates by Harry Jaffa Not something to rip through which I did not it took me nine months of definitions notes and rabbit holes I m glad that I stuck with it and the highest praise that I could make is that I m ready to start it all over That being said there are other books on this subject that I wish to hit before I come back to itOriginally published in 1959 that seems a world away almost as far as the debates themselves Apparently the big thought of that era was Lincoln was responsible for the Civil War and Jaffa develops both sides of this line of thinking To my mind and I m no expert here Jaffa comes down as Douglas and his supporters by not acting and by avoiding dealing with the moral uestion end up causing the warA few examples of my view When Senator Foote of Mississippi had in 1948 invited Senator Hale of New Hampshire to visit Mississippi and grace the highest tree in the forest there which earned him the sobriuet of Hangman Foote Hale responded by inviting Foote to New Hampshire where he assured him a respectful hearing in every town and hamlet p 334 In his Chicago speech of July 10 1858 Lincoln sounded a theme which echoed through the debates He spoke of the annual celebration of independence as he always loved to do in terms which suggest nothing so much as the Feast of the Passover celebrating the deliverance of the Hebrew people from Pharaoh s Egypt or of Easter celebrating the deliverance of the world from original sin p 359 360Although volume upon volume is written to prove slavery a very good thing we never hear of the man who wishes to take the good of it by being a save himself Lincoln p 337 We would say that opinion in Illinois in 1858 was probably about as favorable to Negro citizenship as opinion in Arkansas today is favorable to public school integration p 382Douglas tends to try and dodge and weave his way through avoiding the slavery uestion When Lincoln ask Douglas if he would support the Supreme Court ruling that slavery was wrong Douglas doesn t answer the uestion but attempts to hide behind a statement that no justice would be so insane and that to do so would go against the Constitution All in all a book well worth reading but take care you either will love it or drop it I look forward to Jaffa s seuel A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM
