Publisher's Summary

Before he grew up and became one of Washington's most respected reporters and editors, Andrew Ferguson was, of all things, a Lincoln buff, with the photos on his bedroom wall to prove it. Decades later, Ferguson's latent buffdom is reignited. In Land of Lincoln, he embarks on a curiosity-fueled coast-to-coast journey through contemporary Lincoln Nation, encountering everything from hatred to adoration to opportunism, and all manner of reaction in between.

He attends a national conference of Lincoln impersonators; attends a leadership conference based on Lincoln's "management style"; drags his family across the three-state-long (and now defunct) Lincoln Heritage Trail; and even manages to hold one of five original copies of the Gettysburg Address. Along the way, he weaves in enough history to hook readers of presidential biographies and popular histories while providing the engaging voice and style of the best narrative journalism. This is an entertaining, unexpected, and big-hearted celebration of Lincoln and his enduring influence on the country he helped create.
