Well done, unbiased: highly recommended.
6 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

A reasonably fair, well-balanced portrayal of our 16th president. Not the glowing, untarnished lore I was steeped in while growing up in Springfield, Illinois. I have studied the life of Lincoln for four decades, both in the popular press and obscure scholarly works. I can truly recommend this work as an excellent introduction on the topic. A tip of the hat to Pete Kunhardt!

Lincoln was like us all: he made mistakes, he felt misery and he was, at times, mental. Unlike many of us, he lived his convictions. The man was human, the man was totally honorable and the man is my hero.
