1888 Reminiscences of Abraham Lincoln Slavery Civil War Gettysburg Address
“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.”
Abraham Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War—its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
“Reminiscences of Abraham Lincoln” was compiled from a wonderful collection of first-hand accounts and memories of Abraham Lincoln concerning his personal traits and private utterances, as gathered from the most distinguished characters of the era who personally knew him:
•Gen. Ulysses S. Grant
•Gen. Benjamin F. Butler
•Benjamin Perley Poore
•Hon. Schuyler Colfax
This book beautifully captures the spirit of Lincoln and is wonderfully illustrated with 28 engravings. Additionally, this book provides complete biographical sketches of each individual contributor.
