A complete collection of the funny and witty anecdotes that made Abraham Lincoln famous as America's greatest story teller.

Whenever Abraham Lincoln wanted to make a strong point he usually began by saying, "Now, that reminds me of a story." And when he had told a story every one saw the point and was put into a good humor. While nearly all of Lincoln's stories have a humorous side, they also contain a moral, which every good story should have.

It includes Presidential Incidents, Stories Of The War, Lincoln's Letters, and Speeches all chronologically arranged, including a biographical sketch. Abraham Lincoln, the Great Story Telling President, whose Emancipation Proclamation freed more than four million slaves, was a keen politician, profound statesman, shrewd diplomatist, a thorough judge of men and possessed of an intuitive knowledge of affairs.
