Who Was Abraham Lincoln? (Who Was...?) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born in Connecticut in 1811, Harriet Beecher Stowe was an abolitionist, author, and playwright. Slavery was a major industry in the American South, and Stowe worked with the Underground Railroad to help escaped slaves head north towards freedom. The publication of her book, Uncle Toms Cabin, a scathing anti-slavery novel, fanned the flames that started the Civil War. The books emotional portrayal of the impact of slavery captured the nations attention. A best-seller in its time, Uncle Toms Cabin sealed Harriet Beecher Stowes reputations as one of the most influential anti-slavery voices in US history.

Synopsis:

As the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln guided the nation through the Civil War and saw the abolition of slavery. But Lincoln was tragically the first President to be assassinated. This biography contains more than 100 illustrations and a map.

Synopsis:

The iconic Mount Rushmore displays the faces of four important US presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. Each man made his mark, carving his place in history. Now, the presidents unite once again with the four Who Was...? biographies included in this boxed set, each with eighty black-and-white illustrations, to reveal the stories of these monumental leaders.

Synopsis:

Born into slavery in Maryland in 1818, Frederick Douglass was determined to gain freedom--and once he realized that knowledge was power, he secretly learned to read and write to give himself an advantage. After escaping to the North in 1838, as a free man he gave powerful speeches about his experience as a slave. He was so impressive that he became a friend of President Abraham Lincoln, as well as one of the most famous abolitionists of the nineteenth century.
