Product description

Abraham Lincoln was the greatest writer of the Civil War as well as its greatest political leader. His clear, beautiful, and at times uncompromisingly severe language forever shaped the nation's understanding of its most terrible conflict. This volume, along with "Speeches and Writings 1832-1858," comprises the most comphrensive slelection ever published. Over 550 speeches, messages, proclamations, letters, and other writings - including the inaugural and Gettysburg addresses and the moving condolence letter to Mrs. Bixby - record the words and deeds with which Lincoln defended, preserved, and redefined the Union.
