366 Days in Abraham Lincoln's Presidency
The Private, Political, and Military Decisions of America's Greatest President
Other Editions of This Title:
366 Days in Abraham Lincoln’s Presidency includes fascinating facts like how Lincoln hated to hunt but loved to fire guns near the unfinished Washington monument, how he was the only president to own a patent, and how he recited Scottish poetry to relieve stress. As Scottish historian Hugh Blair said, It is from private life, from familiar, domestic, and seemingly trivial occurrences, that we most often receive light into the real character.”
Covering 366 nonconsecutive days (including a leap day) of Lincoln’s presidency, this is a rich, exciting new perspective of our most famous president. This is a must-have edition for any historian, military history or civil war buff, or reader of biographies.
