    Lincoln was married to Mary Todd Lincoln on November 4, InLincoln secured a Republican Party presidential nomination. Lincoln was able to appoint five Supreme Court justices during his time as president. Lincoln was a self-educated lawyer in Illinois, a Whig Party leader and a state legislator in the s. The book was at times enlightening, at times humorous, and at times sad.

    The quotes contain some good stuff, but also some questionable things that seem to have sprung up later and been attributed to Lincoln. Lincoln jumped out of the coach and asked him questions; the next day 2 letters came to the hospital for the man. Some of these vignettes are so poignant that I cried. The anecdotes are focused mostly on asserting the true extent of his conservative values, demonstrating him as an evangelical Christian highly doubtful and establishing him as a mystic, or perhaps a better word would be psychic, which showed in the collection of anecdotes rather than in any of the commentary by the author himself. He is largely responsible for instituting the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.

    Blacks were summarily murdered by whites and vice versa. Lincoln jumped out of the coach and asked him questions; the next day 2 letters came to the hospital for the man. This book gives the reader a look at the compassion and understanding of Lincoln. His presidential election resulted in seven southern slave states to form the Confederacy before he took the office on March 4, I enjoyed reading this wit and wisdom.

After Lincoln's death, Robert committed his mother, Mary, for a short time. First, he was given a lieutenants commission. The Gettysburg Address was included in the book as well.
