Anecdotes, stories, epigrams and jokes outline the dry wit of America’s 16th President. Whether cooling off a midget adversary or inquiring about the state of a taller soldier’s feet, Mr. Lincoln’s wit rarely failed him. He knew that everybody needed a dose of humor from time to time. Why should the President be exempt?

Wry and insightful, “The Wit & Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln” is a pocketbook to treasure and something to refer to if you ever find yourself stuck in certain situations or merely wish to show another side of one of America’s favorite heads of the union.
