Editorial Reviews

Review

“[With Lincoln in the White House] contains essential information about Abraham Lincoln unavailable elsewhere. . . . Burlingame has achieved a tight focus on Nicolay’s accounts, and they are remarkably valuable. Not so well written as [the letters] of John Hay, Nicolay nonetheless gives a perspective on life in the White House that Hay, with his pyrotechnics, could not achieve in terms of accuracy and reliability. Lincoln scholars will feast on this book.”—John Y. Simon, executive director of the Ulysses S. Grant Association

Nicolay's writing enables one to get a feel of the period of history during which he lived. It also tells us more about the life of those close to the Lincolns and the extraordinary man whom he served as private secretary.

So interesting and you really feel as if you are hanging out with the venerable AL. If you are up on your Civil War politics this will be a real treat for you.
