Honest Abe, The Great Emancipator, The Martyr - Abraham Lincoln was perhaps Americaís greatest President. He is also deeply beloved by many, who are inspired by Lincolnís unwavering sense of justice and willingness to fight for his beliefs. Young readers will marvel at Lincolnís path to greatness from his humble beginnings as a poor Illinois rail splitter up through his election as Americaís 16th President, and into the dark days of the Civil War leading to his tragic assassination. In addition to background on his childhood and his marriage to Mary Todd, numerous sidebars provide simple explanations to relevant historical events such as the Dred Scott Decision and the Mexican Wars.

User Review  - Stephanie - Goodreads

Great overview of the life of one of our nation's greatest presidents. It is a YA title, but I would recommend it (not just this one but the entire series) to adults looking for a shorter read with fantastic explanations and visuals instead of the typical biographical tome. Read full review
