Editorial Reviews

Review

“Harold Bush’s anthology of the writings of Abraham Lincoln and those who knew him creates a portrait of a ‘living, breathing conscience,’ not just a historical figure. Viewed from so many different perspectives, Lincoln emerges in multiple dimensions, beyond the familiar flatness of a Mathew Brady glass negative. A delightful companion for anyone looking to follow in Lincoln’s paths.”—Allen C. Guelzo, Henry R. Luce Professor of the Civil War Era, Gettysburg College



“A representative and well-chosen selection of biographical testimony that helps to demystify the legend and bring the man alive.”—Douglas L. Wilson, Lincoln Studies Center

About the Author

I have been obsessed with Abraham Lincoln since I was about 9 years old. Throughout scores of years since I have read countless books and stories about Lincoln and my admiration has only grown the more I learn. This book is wonderful as it brings you to the time when he was alive and people knew and interacted with him. Many did not realize the stature he was to attain and he had many who opposed him. The power of Lincoln comes though in the hundreds of personal interactions he has with others. I cannot think of any other man who could have dealt so wisely and compassionately under pressures unimaginable and never equalled since. There are still a few confederate sympathizers who hate Lincoln and see him as an evil tyrant but the considered judgment of millions of people, not just Americans, over the intervening 150 years is solid and unambiguous esteem for this man. In his speeches there is poetry and power unmatched by any other President. To see him through the eyes of his contemporaries is a revealing opportunity. This book reinforces my wonder that such a man ever existed.

This book contains writings of Lincoln, his wife, relatives, and other people of that era who knew him. It provides great insight into Lincoln's life, including before politics and his childhood. It is a great way to make an emotional and intellectual connection to Lincoln.
