"If I did not laugh occasionally I should die," Lincoln is said to have told his cabinet, "and you need this medicine as much as I do." Now in paperback, this volume gathers the best unpublished and uncollected work on Lincoln by Benjamin P. Thomas, widely regarded as the greatest Lincoln historian of his generation. This diverse collection is enhanced by an introduction by Michael Burlingame, himself a leading biographer of Lincoln, who provides a balanced portrait of Thomas and his circuitous path toward writing history.
Benjamin P. Thomas [1902-56] was the author of Abraham Lincoln: A Biography and Lincoln's New Salem. Michael Burlingame is the author of The Inner World of Abraham Lincoln and has edited nine volumes of Lincoln source materials.
