Lincoln Biographies/One-Volume

Herndon's Lincoln

In 1889 Lincoln's law partner and a younger colleague published what many scholars consider to be the most influential biography of Lincoln ever written. Now a new, fully annotated edition has been completed by Douglas L. Wilson and Rodney O. Davis, co-directors of the Knox College Lincoln Studies Center.
