This is the first book I have ever read about Abraham Lincoln. I loved this book. It talks about how Lincoln was able to surround himself with his former rivals to bring balance to his government and was able to turn his rivals into his loyal supporters (with one exception: Chase). Abraham Lincoln is one of my heroes. As Seward said of him, "nearly a perfect man". I liked Lincoln's great character. Great book!
