Overview

The book, based on an important exhibition at the New-York Historical Society of original artifacts, iconic images and hand-written period documents, fully traces for the first time the evolution of Lincoln’s relationship with the nation’s largest and wealthiest city. New York’s role as the Union’s prime provider of manpower, money, media coverage, and protest is vividly explored alongside Lincoln’s accompanying growth as a leader, writer, symbol of union and freedom, and, in the final instance, national martyr. Edited by award-winning Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer the book features chapters by some of the leading authorities on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War.
