    Very Good Read!

    It's nice to read a full book about Robert Lincoln. This book was very interesting in showing Robert Lincoln's life after the assassination of his father. It tells the paths his life traveled whether because of who his father was and/or his own accomplishments.

    Mr. Emerson has compiled an interesting and comprehensive biography of Robert Lincoln. It is marred, however, by an unneccessary partisan slant. Most charing were his references to "the Democrat Party", an inaccurate and anachronistic term.
