Michael Economy wow, there are a lot


message 2: by Steve (new)

Steve This list should probably include at least one "Lincoln Hating" book. One can't read only hagiography about such an important man. Possibly this one - The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War

Michael Economy steve: anyone can vote! see the section "find/add books" on the top right.

Thanks, Michael. I'm new here.


message 5: by Michael (new)

Michael Economy I'm in the process of redoing this page so it's a little more obvious. Lots of people don't realize that.
