About the Author
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States, guiding the nation through the Civil War before becoming one of its final vicitims, assasinated at Ford's Theater in Washington on April 15, 1865, less than a week after the surrender of the Confederate army at Appomattox.

Don E. Fehrenbacher (1920-1997) was professor of history at Stanford University. He was the author of several books, including Prelude to Greatness: Lincoln in the 1850's, The Dred Scott Case: Its Significance in American Law and Politics, and Lincoln in Text and Context.
Reviews
"The Library of America in its reissue of American literary classics...has been the most satisfying (and, I suspect, the most lasting) publishing event of my lifetime. The two volumes of Lincoln's complete writings, superbly edited by Don E. Fehrenbacher, ... are the capstone of this splendid continuing series." --Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review
