  • How the examination of the Illinois state bank was the subject of Lincoln’s first recorded speech in the Illinois legislature
  • The importance to Lincoln of the rule of law, whether in bank supervision or the expansion of slavery
  • Why, for Lincoln, well-regulated banks were a source of civic virtue
  • How, to pay for the Civil War, Lincoln created America’s unique dual chartering system and provided for a sound currency
