Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0152064362, Paperback)

Revered by many as our greatest president, Abraham Lincoln is also considered one of America's greatest writers and rhetoricians. His speeches and numerous writings are testament to his powers of communication, and they convey the highest ideals of freedom, democracy, and equality in simple yet eloquent language. Historian Milton Meltzer has compiled a moving collection of our sixteenth president's speeches, letters, and writings. Dramatically illustrated with Stephen Alcorn's powerful and expressive linocuts, this volume reveals the man behind the words and his unfailing dedication to the ideals upon which America was founded.
