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.
