Description
Long out of print—and for years found only in rare bookshops—James Gilmore's 1898 portrait of Abraham Lincoln is available again with this reprint edition. Gilmore (1822–1903), who wrote for the New York Tribune and Atlantic Monthly, first interviewed Lincoln on the day after the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter in April 1861. Over the next four years he came to know the president well, and met him over topics from the New York Draft Riots of 1863 to the Emancipation Proclamation. The book is a valuable source of firsthand information on Lincoln, as well as a window into Civil War–era journalism, and includes Gilmore's interview of Confederate president Jefferson Davis.
