Description

This interactive biography of one of America's greatest presidents covers the entire life of Abraham Lincoln and includes a host of family photographs, official portraits, and other period ephemera, along with removable replicas of sketches, notes, and letters from the president's collection.

As you learn about his childhood and early political career and then the turmoil of the Civil War and his assassination, you'll have access to a variety of historical documents, maps, and illustrations. These include Lincoln's childhood notebook, marriage license, his patent application, and the first piece of mail delivered by the Pony Express.

This incredible volume also features an envelope with fascinating extras, including a broadside offering rewards for the capture of Lincoln’s assassination conspirators and Lincoln’s original handwritten copy of the Emancipation Proclamation, issued on January 1, 1863, declaring “that all persons held as slaves” within the rebellious areas “are, and henceforward shall be, free.”

Find yourself engulfed in the history surrounding Lincoln's life with this well-researched and digestible account of America's sixteenth president. Every Lincoln enthusiast should have this volume in their collection.
