Abe Lincoln Laughing: Humorous Anecdotes Original
Format: Paperback|Change
Price:$5.45+ $3.98 shipping

on August 26, 2004
Abraham Lincoln used jokes and anecdotes as rhetorical devices, political weapons, and just for some simple relief during the unbearable pressure of the Civil War. Because of his reputation as a first-class story-teller, over the years, an entire industry developed creating, rewriting, and embellishing Lincoln stories. In putting together this collection, Zall has endeavored to select stories that Lincoln himself told, even when he himself took them from earlier sources. This is not a joke book, but a collection of colorful, and mostly clean, jokes and anecdotes. Together they offer a glimpse into the psyche of an interesting man who was a master in using simple humor to political purpose.

I enjoyed this book very much. As a classroom teacher, I found the anecdotes and witty quotations useful in teaching about this remarkable man.
