For over a hundred years most historians have relied on the primary writings of Lincoln's male secretaries Nikolay and Hay. Their 10 volume document was embellished to not only preserve the legacy of their mentor, but to secure their future employment in government and railroad industry endeavors. Recently many historians have taken on the deeper reasons behind the great loss of life in such an unnecessary war among Americans. They have a more objective view of the 16th president. This book examines the real political Lincoln.
