The Lincolns spent the summer of 1862 north of the White House at the Soldiers'' Home. The lush, cool hill overlooking the squalid capital promised the Lincolns an escape from the "city of stink." Despite fears about Lincoln''s vulnerability in the secluded place, Lincoln spent a quarter of his presidency at the Soldiers'' Home. But until the National Trust for Historic Preservation began restoring the cottage, little had been done to explore this missing link in Lincoln''s life. Elizabeth Smith Brownstein fills in a critical gap. Using diaries, letters, and eyewitness accounts, she provides unusual perspectives on Lincoln''s relationships, traces the evolution of Lincoln''s image, examines the Lincoln marriage, and more. "Lincoln''s Other White House" is a vivid evocation of a turbulent era, and an intimate portrait of the still elusive president.
