Isaac Newton Arnold draws upon his twenty-five year acquaintance with Abraham Lincoln to create an in-depth, intimate biography of the sixteenth President of the United States. His first hand knowledge of Lincoln provides a unique perspective into the personal and professional life of the president. From his marriage to Mary Todd, his time as a lawyer in Illinois, his reputation making debates with Stephen Douglas, through the historic speeches and the dire years of the Civil War, Arnold gives us an insider's view of the man and the era. Presented as it was originally published in 1885.
