Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) is one of the most famous Americans in history and one of the country’s most revered presidents. Schoolchildren can recite the life story of Lincoln, the “Westerner” who educated himself and became a self made man, rising from lawyer to leader of the new Republican Party before becoming the 16th President of the United States. Lincoln successfully navigated the Union through the Civil War but didn’t live to witness his own accomplishment, becoming the first president assassinated when he was killed at Ford’s Theater by John Wilkes Booth.
In the generation after the Civil War, Lincoln became an American deity and one of the most written about men in history. Lincoln loved plays, so it was only fitting that someone wrote a play about his life. John Drinkwater did just that with his play Abraham Lincoln.
This edition of Drinkwater’s Abraham Lincoln is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and pictures of Lincoln and his life, along with other famous leaders and generals of the Civil War.
