In this extraordinary and beautifully illustrated book, we are given Lincoln as we have never seen him before. The text is written by Philip B. Kunhardt, Jr. and his sons, and is accompanied by more than 700 illustrations, most of them drawn from the celebrated Meserve collection, which was assembled by a forebear of the Kunhardts. They include originals by Mathew Brady, Alexander Gardner, and other leading photographers of the day, and vividly evoke the remarkable life of the great President. From his early days on the midwestern frontier, to his election to the presidency, to his four turbulent years as wartime leader, to his tragic assassination, we get a strong sense of the President, the military leader, the homespun politician, the family man, as we follow Lincoln's striking career.
