Editorial Reviews

Review

“In this thoroughly documented study, Glenna Schroeder-Lein presents a fresh investigation into the medical history of Abraham Lincoln and his family. Applying sound methodology, current medical science, and prudent judgment, the author offers the best account to date of the health aspects of arguably America’s most important national figure. This book will not disappoint. Those generally interested in Lincoln, Mary Todd, and the premature deaths of their sons Edward, Willie, and Tad will find it a fascinating and informative read. Lincoln and Medicine gives an insightful glimpse into the life and character of America’s sixteenth president and those closest to him. Lincoln scholars will ignore this book at their peril.” —Michael A. Flannery, author of Well Satisfied with My Position: The Civil War Journal of Spencer Bonsall and Civil War Pharmacy

"Dr. Schroeder-Lein has scored another ace with Lincoln and Medicine. This book examines many of the controversies surrounding Lincoln’s health and his attitudes toward medicine. A must for any Lincolnite and those interested in nineteenth-century medicine.” —Peter J. D’Onofrio, president of the Society of Civil War Surgeons

"Abraham Lincoln is America’s favorite president and medical patient. Many physical and mental conditions have been ascribed to the sixteenth president. Glenna Schroeder-Lein carefully examines the claims and offers convincing conclusions. While Lincoln certainly didn’t hunt vampires, this is a book that anyone can sink their teeth into.” —Dr. Thomas F. Schwartz, director of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library-Museum

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
schroeder-Lein's excellent scholarship manages to cover the President, Mary from their marriage, and their boys. She effectively debunks some speculation on illnesses--especially the President's supposed conditions. Second half deals with assasination and family, chiefly Mary, afterwards. This small volume is full of interesting info.
Recommend the book, even for scholars.

I have read a number oh biographies of Lincoln over the years. Often times much of the content is just regurgitated information, but this book is different and in some regards more personal.
