From the Publisher
First Line Abraham Lincoln wasn't the sort of man who could lose himself in a crowd. After all, he stood six feet four inches tall, and to top it off, he wore a high silk hat.
Annotation The first half of this biography of America's 16th president traces Lincoln's life from his boyhood through his early political career. The second half takes readers through Lincoln's presidency, the Civil War, and his assassination in 1865. Using quotes from Lincoln's letters, speeches, and other writings as well as from contemporary newspaper accounts, the author takes care to present the facts, rather than the mythical legends, of Lincoln's life. As a result, this is a comprehensive look at not only Lincoln the president, but also Lincoln the man, particularly in terms of his relationship with his wife, Mary Todd. The book concludes with a listing of historic sites related to Lincoln, which are open to the public. Illustrated with photographs and prints. Winner of the 1988 Newbery Medal.
Editors Note A collection of period photographs and prints, and a sampler of Lincoln's writings provide an incisive study of the boyhood, marriage, professional life, political career, and tragic death of Abraham Lincoln.
