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.
