Front Cover
Stackpole Books, 2006 - Biography & Autobiography - 387 pages
0 Reviews
An intimate look at the personal character and personality traits of one of America's most respected men. Included are Lincoln's attitude and actions regarding handling of money, work, those in authority, forgiveness, opponents, discipline of colleagues, wife and children, and humility in the use of great public power.

The observer and commentator is really the author's father, who over a five-year period, worked hand-in-glove with not only the president, but also the Lincoln family, and who was able to observe Lincoln in nearly all circumstances, social and political.

This is a work of "extraordinary insight" into a great man.
