    Great Informative Book from Beginning to End!!

    It starts with his family in New England and why they moved to the mid-west and how his grandfather was killed. Goes into great detail about his upbringing with his mother, father and step-mother and how he was able to get his hands on the hard to find books with no money. Speaks of his many jobs and how he became a self taught lawyer, politician and president. There is a lot of detail about the Civil War, including names of high ranking officers and which states they where from and what their battles where like and where. It states how he kept his "woodsman" like slang until his death. There are many letters that are written verbatim with names and dates. Speaks about his wife and children. How slavery ended and how many slaves where in the country at that time and how they became involved with the war. It ends with how Lincoln was killed in detail, by whom, how, and what happened to the men involved. This was a huge history lesson of things I was not taught, forgotten, or was not told correctly as this book was written when Lincoln was alive. Only disappointment was not mentioning Connecticut and how that state assisted in the war.

    Very Good Read

    Difficult at first due to the 19th century language, but after a time, one gets accustomed to it. Since the author knew Lincoln, and lived through this most difficult time in American history, the accounting was even more personal than any current historian could offer. Highly recommend for anyone interested in Lincoln's presidency.
