These recollections were compiled from Lamon's notes and papers by his daughter, Dorothy, and published in 1895. The expanded second edition of 1911 has been used for this reprinting. Recollections of Abraham Lincoln has often been cited for its firsthand testimony about key episodes and incidents, including the phantom-like train trip to Washington in 1861, a visit to Charleston during the secession crisis, and Lincoln's foreboding dreams.

This book offers a revealing look into Lincoln the man as told by one of his closest companions. I have always had the utmost respect and admiration for Lincoln because of what he did for this country, but far more now that I have had this peak into his true character. I am so glad to have found and read this historical treasure!
