About the Author

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865) was the 16th President of the United States. He successfully led the country through its greatest internal crisis, the American Civil War, preserving the Union and ending slavery. As the war was drawing to a close, Lincoln became the first American president to be assassinated. Before his election in 1860 as the first Republican president, Lincoln had been a lawyer, an Illinois state legislator, a member of the United States House of Representatives, and twice an unsuccessful candidate for election to the U.S. Senate.

I haven't read this yet, and ya know what? I bet they didn't add the part before the adress and after the battle Lincoln had all the Yankees have a proper burial and left the Rebels on the feild! I'm not siding with the Rebels I'm shocked that an American president left Americans out on the feild to rot. Yes, I know the Rebels seperated from the u.s. but they were just as American though first called Southern as their Northern counterparts
