    William O. Stoddard Lincoln's White House Secretary

    This edited autobiography failed to provide any new valuable insights about either Abraham Lincoln and wartime Washington. Stoddard's memoirs offered memorable insights and anecdotes to please Stoddard and his immediate family.
    I found Stoddard's edited memoirs by Harold Holzer to be uninteresting and tedious to read. I could not bring myself to finish reading, but to glance through the last several chapters.
    I find in good conscience, I would be unable to recommend this book to anyone.

    indepth memoir of linclons whitehouse secretary

    "linclons white house secretary" by harold harolzer is a very indepth and fasinating look at the linclon administration as well as linclon himself. this bestseller cameabout because the granddaughter had the papers and memoirs and notes of her grandfather who was linclons whitehouse secretary this book gives an indepth look into the presidents battles and assanation and an inside look into many things that we may never see in except through an insiders eyes. great gift idea for a friend or family
