The Lincoln-Douglas debates : the first complete, unexpurgated text by Abraham Lincoln( Book )
14 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 1,516 libraries worldwide
In the blistering summer of 1858, as America teetered on the brink of disunion, two Illinois politicians seized the nation's attention and gripped it for two extraordinary months. Through the sheer force of their words, personalities, and ideas, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas transformed a local contest for the U.S. Senate into a watershed national debate on the contentious issue of slavery and, indeed, on the principles upon which this country was founded. Yet what Lincoln and Douglas really said in those seminal debates has long been suppressed. At the time, newspapers were blatantly partisan, and though stenographers took down the speeches word for word, editors and transcribers subsequently "improved" their candidate's remarks while printing his opponent's words, warts and all. What has been reprinted ever since are the "improved," inaccurate versions. Harold Holzer has uncovered unedited texts of the debates, and this book will be the first ever to present all seven of them in their unexpurgated entirety. Besides the first true transcription of the debates, Holzer offers, through an Introduction and extensive notes, crystalline portraits of the combatants - their personalities and bearing, their quirks and foibles. Holzer also casts a brilliant light on the "house divided against itself," showing us an America at once exuberant and deeply uncertain about its future. He provides trenchant evocations of the physical and emotional stages on which the debates were set. We glimpse the feverishly enthusiastic audiences that mobbed the debates. We also witness the exceptional fervor with which the entire country followed them. Lincoln and Douglas galvanized a nation and permanently transformed our national consciousness with the speeches they gave during the summer and fall of 1858. To read the words these men actually spoke in their historic confrontation is an opportunity to witness the apex of American political discourse. Here - for the first time in more than 130 years - are those words. Here - at last - is that opportunity

The Lincoln mailbag : America writes to the President, 1861-1865 by Harold Holzer( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 663 libraries worldwide
Harold Holzer, the editor of Dear Mr. Lincoln: Letters to the President, dips once again into Lincoln's bulging mailbag to assemble and annotate a volume of letters, many of them never before published, that the American people wrote to their president during the Civil War - correspondence that offered praise, criticism, advice, threats, abuse, and appeals for help and for special favors from men and women throughout the country. Significantly, this collection may be more representative of the mood of the country at the time than Lincoln might have known; it includes letters from black Americans, originally routed to the War Department's Colored Troops Bureau, that Lincoln never saw

The Lincoln-Douglas debates by Abraham Lincoln( Sound Recording )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 568 libraries worldwide
"The Lincoln-Douglas Debates, seven legendary meetings between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas during their 1858 senatorial campaign in Illinois, made history, and changed its course as well. ... The debates were the culmination of a political rivalry that had its origin twenty-five years before, when Lincoln and Douglas were aspiring politicians in the Illinois legislature. The main theme was slavery and its expansion into the western territories. Douglas argued for the concept of popular sovereignty, with the people of each territory deciding the slavery question for themselves. But in Lincoln's view, this approach would nationalize and perpetuate slavery. Though Douglas won re-election to the Senate, Lincoln's gift for oratory and his anti-slavery stance in the debates made him a nationally known figure, and led to his election to the presidency in 1860"--Container

Recollected words of Abraham Lincoln by Abraham Lincoln( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 536 libraries worldwide
This is the first comprehensive collection of remarks attributed to Abraham Lincoln by his contemporaries. Much of what is known or believed about the man comes from such utterances, which have been an important part of Lincoln biography. About his mother, for instance, he never wrote anything beyond supplying a few routine facts, but he can be quoted as stating orally that she was the illegitimate daughter of a Virginia aristocrat. Similarly, there is no mention of Ann Rutledge in any of his writings, but he can be quoted as saying when he was president-elect, "I did honestly and truly love the girl and think often, often of her now." Did Lincoln make a conditional offer to evacuate Fort Sumter in April 1861? Did he personally make the decision to restore General McClellan to army command in September 1862? To whom did he first reveal his intention to issue an emancipation proclamation? Did he label the Gettysburg address a failure right after delivering it? Did he, just a few days before his assassination, dream of a president lying dead in the White House? All of these questions, and many others, arise from recollective quotations of Lincoln, and the answer in each instance depends upon how one appraises the reliability of such recollection. Recalled piecemeal over a period of more than half a century and scattered about in diaries, letters, newspaper interviews, and reminiscent writing of various kinds, these quotations lie outside the Lincoln canon in the sense that they are not, with a few exceptions, included in his published "works," nor has their authenticity been more than randomly tested. This book contains only quotations traceable to named auditors (persons claiming to have heard the quoted words directly from Lincoln) plus quotations reported contemporaneously by anonymous newspaper correspondents. The quotations are arranged alphabetically by auditor, often with critical comment. The book is designed not only as a collection of quotations but as a step toward the evaluation of such resources and as a critique of historians' use of them

Lincoln in his own time : a biographical chronicle of his life, drawn from recollections, interviews, and memoirs by family, friends, and associates by Harold K Bush( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
More than any other American before or since, Abraham Lincoln had a way with words that has shaped our national idea of ourselves. Actively disliked and even vilified by many Americans for the vast majority of his career, this most studied, most storied, and most documented leader still stirs up controversy. Showing not only the development of a powerful mind but the ways in which our sixteenth president was perceived by equally brilliant American minds of a decidedly literary and political bent, Harold K. Bush's Lincoln in His Own Time provides some of the most significant contemporary

The life of Abraham Lincoln by Isaac N Arnold( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Isaac N. Arnold's word picture owes everything to personal observation because he knew Abraham Lincoln well for a quarter of a century. Eventually an adviser to the sixteenth president, Arnold attended his inaugurations, heard his great speeches, visited him at the White House, and on a spring day in 1865 joined the procession that carried his slain body there. Twenty years later he published this biography, giving a detailed sense of Lincoln the entertaining storyteller, the shrewd politician, the steadfast visionary. Here is the story of Lincoln's rise from humble origins to the presidency, backgrounded by events leading inexorably to the Civil War. Boyhood in Kentucky and Illinois, legal and legislative experiences, marriage to Mary Todd, name-making debates with Stephen Douglas, struggles as president to end slavery and shore up the union, conduct of Northern forces as commander-in-chief, murder at Ford's Theater - all fuel the narrative drive of The Life of Abraham Lincoln
Team of rivals : the political genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This multiple biography is centered on Lincoln's mastery of men and how it shaped the most significant presidency in the nation's history. Historian Goodwin illuminates Lincoln's political genius, as the one-term congressman rises from obscurity to prevail over three gifted rivals to become president. When Lincoln emerged as the victor at the Republican National Convention, his rivals were dismayed. Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery led inexorably to civil war. That Lincoln succeeded, Goodwin demonstrates, was because of his extraordinary ability to put himself in the place of other men, to experience what they were feeling, to understand their motives and desires. It was this that enabled Lincoln to bring his disgruntled opponents together, create the most unusual cabinet in history, and marshal their talents to the task of preserving the Union
