"The portrait of Abraham Lincoln found in this book is drawn entirely from the writing of his contemporaries and extends from his political beginnings in Springfield to his assassination. It reveals a more severely beleaguered, less godlike, and finally a richer Lincoln than has come through many of the biographies of Lincoln written at a distance after his death. To those who are familiar only with the various "retouched" versions of Lincoln's life, A Press Portrait will be a welcome - if sometimes surprising - addition to the literature surrounding the man who is perhaps the central figure in all of American history."--Jacket.
