Editorial Reviews


" ... the stories of lover, husband, father, humorist, lawyer, public speaker, politician and statesman tell us as much about the construction of myth and legend as they do about Lincoln. Failures of memory and event distortions abound. But there are also rich nuggets of historical evidence, notably an extended interview with Robert Hitt, Lincoln's stenographer in the senatorial election campaign of 1858." --TLS, July 30, 1999

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This edition is a modern update and expansion of memories and tales about Lincoln gathered starting in 1886 by Walter B. Smith then chief of the Washington bureau of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Even at that time the legends about Lincoln had begun to grow. Understandably what people remembered, or were willing to present, probably portrayed themselves in a favorble light and presented themselves as closer to Lincoln than they may actually have been. The author himself was not above presenting material from other sources as interviews he had personaly conducted. Keeping that in mind the book offers glimpses of an elusive historical figure from a variety of points of view from people who knew him. Editor Michael Burlingame does an admirable job of informing the reader of the limitations inherent in this kind of gahering oral history. There is a fascination to reading about Lincoln as known by political friends and opponents, relatives and fellow attorneys, merchants and those who knew him when they were children.
