Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln: Great American Historians on Our Sixteenth President by Brian Lamb, Susan Swain, and C-SPAN on Lincoln scholarship over the years is a compilation of the best interviews. Many fine writers – including Lincoln scholar David Herbert Donald – have chapters covering Lincoln’s early life, lawyering in Illinois, political elections and the Lincoln-Douglas debates, the presidency, and the Civil War. Lincoln’s most famous speeches and documents are included. Walt Whitman and Harriet Beecher Stowe are also given their rightful place in the Abraham Lincoln life of trial and humor and genius.
