Overview

Following the outbreak of the Civil War, Pinkerton served as head of the Union Intelligence Service in 1861–1862 and foiled an alleged assassination plot in Baltimore, Maryland, while guarding Abraham Lincoln on his way to his inauguration.
The first book about Abraham Lincoln documents the attempted assassination of then President-elect Abraham Lincoln on his way to his inauguration. Written in response to a published letter by John A. Kennedy, who claimed, along with his detective force, the responsibility of discovering the plot and stated ”I know nothing of any connection of Mr. Pinkerton with the matter.” Pinkerton explains this with ”In this respect, Mr. Kennedy spoke the truth: he did not know of my connection with the passage of Mr. Lincoln, nor was it my intention that he should know of it. Secrecy is the one thing most neccessary to the success of the detective, and when a secret is to be kept, the fewer who know of it the better.” Includes statements from Lincoln and letters to Pinkerton from officials concerning the event.
The second part of this Lincoln book is a poem written by Abraham Lincoln himself.
The third part of the Lincoln book is a book compiled of Abe Lincolns stories and quotes.
Three parts to this one nook book all about Abraham Lincoln.
