Overview

Lincoln in the Times: The Life of Abraham Lincoln, as Originally Reported in the New York Times by David Herbert Donald

A unique history of Lincoln's political rise, presidency, and death as reported by the nation's most respected newspaper, with introductions and additional perspectives from two eminent Lincoln historians

The New York Times closely covered the political career and presidency of Abraham Lincoln: his political rise, the early years of his presidency, the Civil War, and his assassination and its aftermath—perhaps our nation's most critical and dramatic presidency. Lincoln in the Times includes coverage of the major events in Lincoln's political life, such as his campaign, his surprising election, and his inaugurals; the State of the Union addresses, the Gettysburg Address, and the Emancipation Proclamation; the assassination and funeral. Edited and with introductions and supporting text by David Herbert Donald and Harold Holzer, the book contains vintage photographs and illustrations of Lincoln and others close to him, in the White House and on the battlefields that he visited.
