Abraham Lincoln

Sixteenth president of the United States, Lincoln is counted among the greatest and certainly the most revered; as the savior of a nation or the Great Emacipator, every generation has had  different interpretations of his influence,  actions, and of the man himself. There have probably been more books written on Lincoln then any other president. Here is a sample of some recent titles, as well as some classics.

Presidential Libraries

The Presidential Library System started in 1939 when FDR donated his personal and presidential papers to the federal government.  In 1955, Congress passed the Congressional Libraries Act, establishing a system of federally maintained libraries.  There is a library/museum for every former president since Herbert Hoover.  Content of these websites vary; ranging from virtual exhibits, primary documents, to audio and video of speeches and events.
