Description

The Wit & Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln is a treasury of hundreds of salty stories, amusing anecdotes, inspiring quotes, speech excerpts, and opinions from the legendary and beloved president. Not only was Lincoln a brilliant speechwriter, crafting pearls like the Gettysburg Address, but he also spent years as a young lawyer whose local campaigns made him an expert at creating lively and interesting popular remarks ad hoc. His dry and ironic wit as well as his eloquent defense of his ideals are all exhibited here. The Wit & Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln is must reading for history buffs, toastmasters, and the legion of Lincoln admirers.
