Other than being a lawyer, Abraham Lincoln was also known as a great poet, inventor, and a good writer. While defending, in 1841, one of three brothers on trial for murder in a court case, William Trailor, Abraham Lincoln surprised everyone else in the courtroom. A few years later, Lincoln published the short story based on the strange case of ‘lost Fisher’ in his book of true crime in American Anthology, ‘Remarkable case of arrest for murder.' This journal entry will provide a piece of brief foundational information about a case narrated by Lincoln into the short story.

This story seems to value and promote the worth of testimony and defense in the light of the witness and evidence. It revealed how the case of the lower category was raised to a higher level by just on suspicions. The man gave a full record about the mysterious case through his extraordinary writing skills, but the conclusion about this case is still a mystery. Fisher was found alive in his home. However, Henry testified about his dead body. Even though if the man was killed and the police would not have been able to discover the dead body, this case would still not be bad for the Trailers.
