Abstract:

Everyone wants to define the man who signed his name "A. Lincoln."

Through meticulous research of the newly completed Lincoln Legal Papers, as well as of recently discovered letters and photographs, White provides a portrait of Lincoln's personal, political, and moral evolution. A transcendent, sweeping, passionately written volume that expands our knowledge and understanding of its subject, A. Lincoln will engage a whole new generation of Americans. - Back cover.

Lincoln scholar Ronald C. White, Jr., describes Lincoln as a man of integrity whose moral compass holds the key to understanding his life.
