Description - Lincoln and the Jews by Jonathan D. Sarna
Over the past thirty years, the Shapell Manuscript Foundation has assembled a remarkable private collection of original manuscripts documenting Abraham Lincoln's relations with Jews. At a time when Jewish immigration was increasing - and with it, anti-Semitism - Lincoln took a less-than-popular approach: he represented Jews, befriended Jews, admired Jews, defended Jews, pardoned Jews, and extended rights to Jews. Lincoln and the Jews - a book that celebrates Lincoln's unique tolerance, regardless of race or religion - has great contemporary relevance. With hundreds of rare images and newly discovered manuscripts, the book beautifully illustrates the breadth and depth of Lincoln's historic relationship with Jews, and uncovers a mostly unknown side of America's greatest leader.
