Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Much has been said and written in regard to Mr. Lincoln's character for kindness," wrote John M. Bullock, who had gone to the White House to plead on behalf of his dying brother, a Confederate prisoner of war.
Before approaching the President I felt a natural diffidence, not to say awe, of the man who was Chief Executive of the nation, commander-in-chief of the army and navy, as well as the man who held the life of my brother in his hand.... The closer I approached the great man, however, the less I feared him, the higher my courage rose; and before the interview was over I was as much at ease with President Lincoln as if talking to my own father.
This is just one of over two dozen firsthand appraisals of Abraham Lincoln collected by Tennessee schoolteacher Victoria Radford. Through other people's eyes, his compassion, dignity, and respect for his fellow men are revealed, even in the midst of leading the United States through the brutal Civil War. Meeting Mr. Lincoln is a slim volume, barely over 100 pages, but a fascinating bit of history.

Review

Endearing...a small gem which will appeal to all readers. (Steven K. Rogstad Lincoln Herald)

Format: Hardcover
Ms. Radford has allowed us the opportunity to peak in on intimate meetings of individuals with President Lincoln. From statesmen to soldiers, widows to young boys, Americans who had the opportunity to speak firsthand with Abraham Lincoln while he served as President share a common experience. Each felt as if he had the president's undivided attention and utmost respect. If you're looking for a hero, America still has one in Honest Abe. This book is a treat for history buffs.

Another small chance to get to know Mr. Lincoln. A quick enjoyable read that takes you back in time when an average citizen could approach an speak with their president.
