Shortly after Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated president in 1861, an old friend from Illinois asked him how he liked living in the Executive Mansion (as the White House was generally called in those days). Lincoln replied that he felt a bit like the reprobate in Springfield who had been tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail. (from the first line)
By the acclaimed two-time Pulitzer prize winner, author of the definitive Lincoln, a beautifully packaged and affordable portrait of the Lincolns at home in the White House.
From the Publisher:
A Lincoln biographer provides readers with a intimate portrait of the Lincoln family in the White House, from their less-than-spectacular entrance to that fateful night at Ford's Theater.
Famed Lincoln biographer David Herbert Donald explores the challenges that Lincoln faced in his domestic life, including his relations with his troubled wife who was criticized for decorating a run-down White House, and the tragic death of their son. This edition also includes letters written by the Lincoln family to one another.
