As Lincoln said in his “House Divided” speech, “If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.” The house divided...

    Just 1 book on Abraham Lincoln

    If you can recommend just 1 book on Abraham Lincoln what would it be? (I typed in search and didn't find anything I was looking for) I'm seeking for a book that includes his whole life and not just the war. Where he came from and all the "failures"( I don't view them as failures, like Edison...

    Unable to verify two Abraham Lincoln stories, can anybody help?

    I ran across a couple of things today and can't seem to find any sources that verify either of them. First, while I did find in Abe Lincoln's Yarns and Stories a story close to it, it isn't the same- as the story in the book goes, after replacing Secretary of War Simon Cameron with Edwin...
