McMillan Palgrave

A man of humble beginnings, minimal schooling, and early failures, Abraham Lincoln was, above all, a man of the people. This frontiersman-turned-chief executive was a simple man with large goals, who was savvy enough to recognize the power of the new invention of photography, and was willing to use it to shape his image and create an historic legacy. More than one hundred images of Lincoln's life and times provide a complete portrait of our most revered president, and the events that defined him. From the only confirmed existing picture of Lincoln before the historic Gettysburg Address to his second inauguration-where he is unknowingly surrounded by John Wilkes Booth and his co-conspirators-to the execution of his murderers, this eye-opening, inspiring visual journey provides a fresh take on one of the most documented and beloved figures in American history.
