Book Reviews - Lincoln and the Civil War in the Diaries and Letters of John Hay by John Hay

US Kirkus Review » The biographer of John Hay, a Pulitzer Prize Winner, has made an interesting collection of letters and extracts from the diaries, that give a vivid and human picture of Washington during the years of the Civil War, of Lincoln the man, of Mary Todd Lincoln, of Cabinet Members, military figures, the never ceasing flow of a nation through a wartime capital. A revealing and absorbing study of inner strife, of uncertainty, of high purpose at odds with petty rivalries. Ultimately, Dennett may publish the complete letters and diaries. Meantime, these selections read consecutively as a fresh slant on the war years; and, with a break, brief glimpses, very incomplete, of Hays' later years, in Paris, in Madrid. An important Lincoln item. (Kirkus Reviews)
