In The Review Queue: Abraham Lincoln Civil War Stories


Edited by Joe Wheeler

Of the countless books about our beloved President Lincoln, few—if any—contain such a rare collection of stories as this unique volume does, especially about the Civil War days. Gathered over a lifetime from old magazines and publications, most published between the 1880s and 1950s, these stories tell of the personal life of Lincoln and the impact he had on the people who met him.

Children and adults alike will be thrilled with these heartwarming stories of this great but humble man. This is the perfect book to read together as a family and a wonderful way to create a new family tradition.

Visually enhanced by photographs, as well as rare etchings that Joe Wheeler has assembled throughout his research, Abraham Lincoln Civil War Stories offers an intimate look into the servant heart of President Lincoln, his dedication to the men who served him, and his homespun humor and wisdom.
