Lincoln at Home: Two Glimpses of Abraham Lincoln's Family Life

Lincoln at Home: Two Glimpses of Abraham Lincoln's Family Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As Lincoln led the nation into the Civil War, managing the Union was effort, issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, winning reelection in 1864, and planning the Reconstruction of the South, he also led a private life, defined by his close relationship with his wife and by his devotion to his children. "Lincoln at Home" offers a view into the life of family through their written correspondence.

With a brief account of their first years in the White House and the complete collection of all the known letters exchanged by Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, this elegant portrait defines the sixteenth president as a dedicated — though often a desperately busy and distracted — family man.

"Lincoln at Home" is an intimate and rare glimpse of the president as husband and father, a cheerful man pinned to the floor while playing with his children, and a desolate man struck down with grief at the death of his son. Beyond this, we are shown a personal side of the man who managed one of the most difficult periods in American history.

Synopsis:

The author of the definitive biography of Lincoln offers a portrait of the President's domestic life in the White House in this beautifully rendered edition. Includes a collection of all the letters exchanged by Abraham and Mary Lincoln and their children.
