Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Abe Lincoln's law offices to the 16th president's Oval Office; from the address in Springfield, Illinois, where he made up with Mary Todd after a premarital spat to the window he jumped out of to avoid a quorum call in the Illinois General Assembly — this unprecedented volume of Lincoln lore takes readers there. A longtime member of notable Lincoln societies, Ralph Gary has scoured county courthouse records and the writings of Lincoln's contemporaries as well as thousands of other books written on Lincoln's life and work to compile the most complete and up-to-date guide to Lincoln historical sites ever published. Included are detailed maps showing Lincoln's travels so that students of the Civil War and Lincoln buffs can retrace history by walking in the footsteps of one of America's most popular presidents. "By far the most comprehensive and useful guide ... well researched, beautifully written, and a much-needed reference." — Rhode Island Supreme Court Chief Justice Frank J. Williams, Chair, The Lincoln Forum

Synopsis:

From attorney Lincoln's law offices to the presidential Oval Office, from the address in Springfield, Illinois, where he made up with Mary Todd after a spat, to the window he jumped out of to avoid a quorum call in the Illinois General Assembly, this unprecedented volume takes readers there. It also answers lingering questions about Lincoln's life as it sifts for the truth among the disputes that continue to rage among scholars.
