Abraham Lincoln's Extraordinary Era by K. M. Kostyal

Book Description

This book offers stories, anecdotes, and never-before-seen images and artifacts from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum's vault. It positions Lincoln as a man of his century, a time ripe with Industrial Revolution, travel and culture, abolition, and war. Worldwide events figure into the story: Britain's emergence as a democracy, Russia's freeing of the serfs, Japan's opening to foreign trade, Germany's unity under Bismarck. Every page reflects the humor, integrity, and unique style of leadership that made Abe Lincoln a legend. Quote boxes reveal his sayings; cartoons give a glimpse of him from domestic and foreign shores; sidebars highlight archaeological discoveries, such as the store where young Lincoln held his first job. Personal incidents tell of his special relationship with son Willy; his love for his wife; and the reverence he has inspired in such luminaries as Tolstoy, Gandhi, and Thatcher.
