Publisher Comments:

Landmark biography documents Lincoln's rise from backwoods obscurity to the presidency and his role as commander-in-chief during the Civil War. An artful blend of personal and political detail, the book offers an absorbing look at the life and times of the 16th president, and provides a concise examination of factors leading to the Civil War.

Synopsis:

The stranger-than-fiction story of a self-taught backwoods lawyer's transformation into the savior of a nation. Well-researched, engaging biography, written in 1917 by an Englishman, was one of the first major works on Lincoln.
