Life of Abraham Lincoln

  • Magnificent, original 1865 classic Lincoln biography
  • Early childhood and political career in Illinois
  • Exceptional analysis of the Civil War presidency and the man who rose to the occasion with a patriotic summary of his life and tragic death

    Beautifully written in 1865 by a political contemporary, this is one of the greatest and most sensitive works of nineteenth-century American biographic literature. It contains Lincoln's most masterful speeches and writings, along with a contemporary, detailed exposition of Lincoln's views--and his political and military decisions--that held the Union together during the American Civil War. For years (and still today) it was and is an original source of information on Lincoln's life and work, masterfully woven together by Joseph Barrett.
