An intimate portrait of Lincoln, so well-drawn that he seems to come alive on the page. --Charleston Post & Courier Lincoln's Men by Daniel Mark Epstein offers a fascinating close-up view of the Abraham Lincoln White House through the eyes of Lincoln's three personal secretaries: John Nicolay, William Stoddard, and John Hay. Like Doris Kearns Goodwin's monumental New York Times bestseller, Team of Rivals, Epstein's Lincoln's Men sheds a new light on the 16th U.S. president--his brilliance and vision in a time of national turmoil and Civil War--by focusing on his relationships with the men who worked closely by his side. USA Today writes, This is t your typical work of history. Epstein, a poet, employs a dreamy, velistic tone in describing these young men and their tormented boss.
