Abstract:

"Here, chronologically arranged, are the writings of Abraham Lincoln that best illustrate the qualities of mind and spirit that have inspired people of many nations and races for more than a century. Beginning with a few lines written in a school notebook, the selections range from his first short political speeches, position papers delivered to various audiences, the last debate with Douglas to the great Presidential address and the second inaugural. The Gettysburg address is reproduced in his own handwriting. Many of the problems and issues that faced Abraham Lincoln challenge us today. We can all draw strength and renewed dedication from his wisdom and compassion."--Jacket.
