101 Things You Didn’t Know about Lincoln:
Loves and Losses, Political Power Plays, White House Hauntings

Brian Thornton

The Man Behind the Myth, the Myths Behind the Man – Robert Charles and I had the pleasure earlier this year of visiting the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois. (Robert took the photograph of General Ulysses S. Grant and me being bored to tears by that loafer, General George B. McClellan.) The museum is a grand and surprisingly moving tribute to a giant of American history about whom much is known. Brian Thorton’s book is a fun and even insightful look at the life, lies and legacies of our 16th President.
