The Lincoln papers : the story of the collection, with selections to July 4, 1861 by David C Mearns( Book )
12 editions published between 1948 and 1969 in English and held by 1,428 libraries worldwide
"Shortly after Lincoln's death, in 1865, all the papers which had accumulated in his office files during his presidency, plus many more which he had brought with him from Springfield, were removed from the White House by his son. From that time until July 26, 1947, when the collection was first opened to the public, these papers were shrouded in secrecy. In the introductory chapters of this book, the author presents the dramatic history of the collection, exploring and explaining the origins of the fabulous legend which grew up around it during the eighty-two years that it remained inaccessible to scholars and to the public. Following this introductory section is the main body of these two volumes- a selection of more than 500 vital documents from the monumental collection now in the Library of Congress, with notes when they are necessary to make the papers completely intelligible to the reader. This selection of papers goes up to July 4, 1861, covering Lincoln's early years, his political campaigns, and the first critical months of the presidency when the nation was torn by civil war."--Jacket

The Library of Congress World War II companion by Margaret E Wagner( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,296 libraries worldwide
"Historian John Keegan called World War II "the largest single event in human history." More than sixty years after it ended, that war continues to shape our world. Going far beyond accounts of the major battles, The Library of Congress World War II Companion examines this devastating conflict, its causes, conduct, and aftermath. It considers the politics that shaped the involvement of the major combatants; military leadership and the characteristics of major Allied and Axis armed services; the weaponry that resulted in the war's unprecedented destruction, as well as debates over the use of these weapons; the roles of resistance groups and underground fighters; war crimes; daily life during wartime; the uses of propaganda; and much more." "Drawn from the unparalleled collections of the institution that has been called "America's Memory," The Library of Congress World War II Companion includes excerpts from contemporary letters, journals, pamphlets, and other documents, as well as first-person accounts recorded by the Library of Congress Veterans History Project. The text is complemented by more than 150 illustrations. Organized into topical chapters (such as "The Media War," "War Crimes and the Holocaust," and two chapters on "Military Operations" that cover the important battles), the book also includes an index, making it easy for readers to navigate through the rich store of information in these pages. Filled with facts and figures, information about unusual aspects of the war, and moving personal accounts, this remarkable volume will be indispensable to anyone who wishes to understand the World War II era and its continuing reverberations."--Jacket

The Library of Congress Civil War desk reference ( Book )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,239 libraries worldwide
From the home of The Nation's Memory comes the ultimate one-volume reference on the Civil War. Features include a timeline of the war with important political, military, and social events; biographies of important figures; and concise coverage of major campaigns and battles. 100 photos. 38 maps. The bloody conflict that sundered the United States from 1861 to 1865 took 620,000 lives, laid waste to large sections of the American South, and decided the future course of the nation. Its reverberations are still felt in American life. Now from the home of The Nation's Memory comes The Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference. Drawn from the Library's unparalleled Civil War collections-including previously unpublished letters and diaries, maps and photographs, as well as thousands of works by post-Civil War scholars and experts-this is the ultimate one-volume reference on the Civil War. A comprehensive yet accessible compendium, The Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference is organized into chapters that address broad themes such as Antebellum America, Wartime Politics, Armies, and Reconstruction and Aftermath of the War. Each of these chapters includes more specific topics, such as The Election of 1860, Notable Civil War Officers, and African Americans During Reconstruction. There are timelines that chronicle major events, brief profiles of significant people, and excerpts from key pieces of legislation and addresses that reflect the passions and politics of the times. Here readers can find, for example, detailed information on the arms used on both sides during the Civil War in the Weaponry chapter. And descriptions of significant battles, as well as information on casualties, military strategy and tactics, and logistical support, are to be found in the Battles and the Battlefield chapter. Topics ranging from economic conditions north and south of the Mason-Dixon line on the eve of the war to the history of slavery in the United States to the impact of the Civil War on literature and the fine arts give additional depth and context to the book's presentation of Civil War events. The Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference also looks beyond the major events and figures and examines the lives of the common soldiers (from their diet, training, and medical treatment to the struggles of the Union's black soldiers), the various roles women played in the war, and telling events on the home fronts. Along with the words of writers such as Walt Whitman and Herman Melville, readers will find excerpts from the journals and letters of nurses, soldiers, refugees and freedmen. A final chapter offers a guide to further study of the Civil War-including information about major archival collections, important published resources, and national historic sites-for those who wish to learn more. Prodigious in its scope, illustrated with more than 100 photographs and drawings and dozens of maps, The Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference is sure to become the indispensable one-volume reference on the Civil War. Wagner's (Library of Congress), Gallagher's (history, U. of Virginia), and Finkelman's (law, U. of Tulsa) guide is organized thematically into 13 main chapters, each further divided into several topics. A detailed table of contents and 38-page subject index make this an easy text to use. It is also unique in its inclusion of subjects generally absent in other works, such as the contributions of topographical engineers and mapmakers, and developments in surgery and medical care. Illustrated with some 100 photographs, drawings and maps, this academic text is accessible to general readers interested in American history and the Civil War

James Madison and the search for nationhood by Robert Allen Rutland( Book )
4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 1,138 libraries worldwide
At long last, James Madison has his memorial on Capitol Hill, and in this grand Library building. As the bicentennial of the framing of our Constitution approaches, here we provide monumental evidence that our nation has not forgotten the chief architect and advocate of our still-vital Constitution. Historians will probably agree that James Madison was less effective as a politician than as a statesman, a scholar, and a political philosopher. If the politician must have his eye on the next election, and the statesman on the next generation, this Library, invigorated by the quiet scholarly spirit of Madison, can remind us of the vistas of the past, and future, generations. - Foreword
