About this item

An extensively researched, lavishly illustrated consideration of the myths, memories, and questions that gathered around our most beloved - and most enigmatic - president in the years between his assassination and the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial in 1922. Availing themselves of a vast collection of both published and never-before-seen materials, the authors - the fourth and fifth generations of a family of Lincoln scholars - bring into focus the posthumous portrait of Lincoln that took hold in the American imagination. Told through the voices of those who knew the man - Northerners and Southerners, blacks and whites, neighbors and family members, adversaries and colleagues - Looking for Lincoln charts the dramatic epilogue to Lincoln's extraordinary life.
