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 war 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 his devotion to his children. Lincoln at Home offers a view into the life of the family through their written correspondence. andlt;BRandgt; With a brief account of their 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. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Iandgt;Lincoln at Homeandlt;/Iandgt; 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 by 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:

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.
