In an authoritative collection celebrating the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth, America's top Lincoln historians offer their diverse perspectives on the life and legacy of America's 16th president. Spanning Lincoln's life - from his early career as a Springfield lawyer, to his presidential reign during one of America's most troubled historical periods, to his assassination in 1865 - these essays, developed from original C-SPAN interviews, provide a compelling, composite portrait of Lincoln, one that offers up new stories and fresh insights on a defining leader.
Edited by C-SPAN's Brian Lamb and Susan Swain, Abraham Lincoln is a wonderful compendium of information and deeply-informed analysis that deserves a prominent place in every history lover's library. C-SPAN is directing any royalties from the sale of this audiobook to the nonprofit C-SPAN Education Foundation, which creates teaching materials for middle- and high-school teachers.
