Description

As a young man, Lincoln stood out from the crowd, tall and lanky at six-feet four-inches. He arrived in New Salem and landed a job as a clerk in a general store. Soon thereafter, Lincoln started to make a name for himself, successfully wrestling the town bully and amazing most of his neighbors with his strength and ability to split rails and fell trees—a survival skill that he developed as a child of the American frontier. In small towns during that era, the general store was a meeting place, and thus Lincoln grew to know the community well. He delighted people with his wit, intelligence, and integrity. For the less literate citizens of New Salem, Abe's ability to read and write was invaluable. He quickly became a popular member of the town, endearing himself to the locals as a good-natured and "bookish" young man.

    I enjoyed this book very much. Feel that since it was written not that many years after his life that it was probably very accurate. Gave me a real feel for the man.

    Never before have I read a book that so clearly demonstrates the character of this good man as this book. Even though Lincoln is quoted to have said, early in the book, that he was not a Christian, everything I see in his character and devotion to God and man belies that purported denial. My late husband was a devotee of Lincoln, and a lover of history, especially that of the Civil War, and all of the places we toured to trace that era have come alive and meaningful through this story of the life of Lincoln. This book imparts a new depth of pride and sympathy with this man, whom I now believe was placed on the earth at this particular time to save the American promise for his descendants and ours. I do not pretend to know half of what my husband knew of that war, but he and I transcribed and published the diary of Thomas Hart Benton McCain, a member and officer of the Indiana 86th Infantry, along with stories from two books he contributed to and published in Crawfordsville, Indiana after the war. In his diary, transcribed in the book, "In Song and Sorrow," he speaks of his deep sorrow and that of other soldiers upon hearing of the assassination of President Lincoln. Geraldine M. C. Rue

    A heartwarming look into the soul of perhaps the greatest man the country or world has ever known! Shall we ever know another so great? Only God knows.

    Slow, fact filled and quite detailed about the life of our 16th President. Has many interesting facts especially about the Civil War and how many of the of the famous figures of that time wove in and out of the eve at of the day.
