Description

“An intimate portrait of Lincoln, so well-drawn that he seems to come alive on the page.”
—Charleston Post & Courier

 

Lincoln’s Menby Daniel Mark Epstein offers a fascinating close-up view of the Abraham Lincoln White House through the eyes of Lincoln’s three personal secretaries:John Nicolay, William Stoddard, and John Hay. Like Doris Kearns Goodwin’s monumentalNew York Times bestseller, Team of Rivals, Epstein’s Lincoln’s Men sheds a new light on the 16th U.S. president—his brilliance and vision in a time of national turmoil and Civil War—by focusing on his relationships with the men who worked closely by his side. USA Today writes, “This is not your typical work of history. Epstein, a poet, employs a dreamy, novelistic tone in describing these young men and their tormented boss.”
