Publisher's Summary

"Honest Abe", "The Great Emancipator", "The Martyr": Abraham Lincoln was perhaps America's greatest president. He is also deeply beloved by many, who are inspired by Lincoln's unwavering sense of justice and willingness to fight for his beliefs.

Young listeners will marvel at Lincoln's path to greatness, from his humble beginnings as a poor Illinois rail splitter up through his election as America's 16th president, and into the dark days of the Civil War - leading to his tragic assassination.

Very sad life.... but great book

What a sad life, full of tragic President Lincoln had lived. This book was very easy to understand, filled with important facts, and very straight to the point. A great book for anyone looking learn about Abe Lincoln's life from childhood until the sad day he was assassinated. I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook, and will now look forward to more Lincoln literature.
