For someone who claimed he had been educated by "littles"-a little now and little then- Abraham Lincoln displayed a remarkable facility in his use of the written word. The simple yet memorable eloquence of his speeches,proclamations and personal correspondence is recorded here in a representative collection of 16 documents.

An invaluable reference for history students,this important volume will also fascinate admirers of Abraham Lincoln,Americana enthusiasts,Civil War buffs and any lover of the finely crafted phrase.
