really liked it
Read in March, 2009

What I liked about this book is that the author really gives you a clear picture of Lincoln's life and the tremendous number of forces that shaped his presidency. I liked that he addressed head on the moral dilemma of slavery and the implications of an America without slavery. I actually wish the book had an ending. It short of stops when Lincoln dies and some type of epilogue would have been nice.
