Abraham Lincoln: His Speeches And Writings by Roy BaslerPresident Lincoln, by virtue of his efforts and accomplishments, has achieved a status in our collective imagination just below divinity. While his memorial is akin to the temple of Athena in Greece, his words are made of sturdier material for all future generations to flock to. Professor Basler presents, in this excellent work, a collection of President Lincoln’s words as revealed via his writings. Some of the topics Lincoln writes about are mundane, others, after a century and a half, are profound. The letters are a fantastic way to see President Lincoln during the times when he was out-of-sight of others and left alone with his personal thoughts. I’ve read this book once before and currently rereading. I derive pleasure in knowing that just like the 19th Century, the United States can once again witness the “...birth of a new freedom...” via the efforts of common citizens.
