This is a facsimile reprint of the 1884 publication, so the printed word looks a bit old-fashioned to modern eyes. The stories are all told by Lincoln's colleagues and friends, so they have that sense of immediacy and authenticity.
This work contains 150 anecdotes and stories about Abraham Lincoln, organised into the major phases of his life: Early Life Stories; Professional Life Stories; White House Stories; War Stories; and Miscellaneous Stories. Published in 1879, the anecdotes reveal the zest and potency that made Lincoln such a remarkable man. The stories are narrated by many of Lincoln's colleagues and friends. It is a Stackpole Classics reprint.
