Of the many distinguished immigrants who have come to America, none contributed so much that was vital and necessary in an advancing era than a man who fought lawlessness and injustice long before the days of scientifically specialized criminal detection. With his great and ingenious brain and his fervent zeal he was one of the original contributors to the permanent enforcement of law and order among our people. His name was Allan Pinkerton.

This is the story of a little known incident the resulted in the saving of the life of Abraham Lincoln.
