Lincoln as I Knew Him edited by Harold Holzer


Monday, July 1 through Friday, July 12, 2002. Read by Karl Schmidt.

Editor Harold Holzer went looking for contemporary accounts of Abraham Lincoln from those who knew him best. These are letters and diaries from fellow lawyers, childhood friends, supporters and opponents. It’s a fascinating and very different view of a man we all think we know.
