Abraham Lincoln remains endlessly fascinating. His honest, integrity and ideals made him a legend. As his own speechwriter he created masterpieces, including the Gettysburg Address. And as a brilliant writer he was an expert at creating lively and interesting popular remarks. This ultimate Lincoln collection includes hundreds of inspiring quotes, amusing anecdotes, salty stories, observations, and Lincoln lore-along with the entire contents of his legendary addresses. It is a must read for history buffs, toastmasters, and every Lincoln admirer.
