    Kevin,

    Do any of these stand out for you? I’m interested in the ones from the Lincoln Concise Library and will order them soon but was wondering about the rest. Thanks.

      Hi Brad,

      All of these books just arrived this past week. I am currently reading Jaime Martinez’s book for the obvious reasons. Michael Burlingame’s is a nice concise overview of Lincoln and the war and Borchard’s book, which focuses on the Lincoln – Greeley relationship is also quite good.

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
