Originally published in 1940, Stern includes Lincoln´s personal and public papers - from his first stump speech in 1832 to a pass a congressman was to use to visit him the day after he was assassinated. The book also contains a 200 page biography of the president. Stern's biography does not attempt to explain Lincoln or his actions as is the fashion in current biographies, but rather presents the facts to readers to draw their own conclusions.
