This is an intimate, moving portrait of Abraham Lincoln as rarely seen (through the eyes of his children) and captured in exquisite illustrations.Abraham Lincoln, America's most revered president, was also a father. Here is Lincoln as seen by two of his sons in the years 1859-1864: Willie thrilled to be on his first train trip with his father when Lincoln was running for president, Willie and Tad barging into cabinet meetings to lift Lincoln's spirits in the early days of the Civil War, Tad accompanying him to Richmond just after the South's defeat. With the war raging and the Union under siege, despite his own sadness and searing personal tragedy, Lincoln was always generous, playful, and loving to his sons. Author Rosemary Wells and illustrator PJ Lynch present a meticulously researched biography that gives us a Lincoln t frozen in time, but accessible and utterly real.
