A central Illinois legal practice shapes a future President Everyone knows about Abraham Lincoln the emancipator, Lincoln the great debater, and Lincoln the orator. But, in all the Lincoln lore out there, we sometimes forget about Lincoln the lawyer. WGLT's Charlie Schlenker has more with central Illinois attorney Guy Fraker who has written a new book addressing that oversight.

   
Hear about Lincoln the judge.

   
Lincoln at the center of corporate warfare, rivers and railroads

   
Fraker will speak about his book at the McLean County Museum of History October 17th and at ISU's Milner Library November 1st.
