This book pulls back into account the oral history that too many historians discount. As an attorney I know that documented history can be over valued and too many times oral history may be more accurate than recorded history.
This book also brings a psycho-analytical approach to both the oral and documented history of Lincoln.
It is a MUST READ for any Lincoln or Civil War historian.
It is hard to turn off.
This was a great book that requires you to step back and look at life and see that maybe stats and numbers aren't all there is to life but maybe they are reflective of life. Or maybe not.
