Abraham Lincoln, His Speeches and Writings by Roy Basler, Carl Sandburg

savaburry's review against another edition

I have always had conflicting thoughts on Abraham Lincoln. He freed the slaves, not out of want, but out of necessity, which never sat well with me looking through my 21st century tinted glasses. Reading his writings helped me understand the dire situation he was in during the war, the decisions he made, and where he morally stood (as best I can).

Very interesting to read many of Lincoln's letters, speeches and fragments. The heft of the book sort of ruined the joy of reading though!
