Summary
"A renowned orator and writer, President Lincoln believed in speaking plainly so every American, regardless of their level of education or literacy, would understand the complicated issues affecting the country. As much a part of his legacy as his leadership during the Civil War and the abolishment of slavery, his simple but elegant words are a testament to his unfailing dedication to the ideals of freedom, equality, and justice upon which America was founded. In this comprehensive collection of Lincoln's writings--from the Emancipation Proclamation to the compassionate and often humorous letters to family and friends--historian Milton Meltzer provides a rare personal glimpse into the life of the man behind the legendary words."--Page [4] of cover
