    Description
    As president. Abraham Lincoln endowed the American language with a vigor and moral energy that have all but disappeared from today's public rhetoric. Lincoln's writings are testaments of our history, windows into his enigmatic personality, and resonant examples of the writer's art.

    'The Portable Abraham Lincoln' contains the great public speeches-the first debate with Stephen Douglas, the "House Divided" Speech, the Gettysburg Address, the Second Inaugural Address-along with less familiar letters and memoranda that chart Lincoln's political career, his evolving stand against slavery, and his day-to-day conduct of the Civil War. The book also includes an introduction, head notes and a chronology of Lincoln's life.
