Description
Abraham Lincoln's official secretaries John Hay and John Nicolay enjoyed more access and knew the president better than anyone outside of his immediate family, and were present at every seminal event, from the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation to the delivery of the Gettysburg Address; after Lincoln's assassination, the duo became the gatekeepers of his legacy. As Joshua Zeitz argues here, the image of a humble man with uncommon intellect who rose from obscurity to become a storied wartime leader and emancipator is very much Hay and Nicolay's creation. Drawing on letters, diaries, and memoirs, Zeitz also suggests that these budding statesmen's biography of Lincoln also reframed the Civil War as a battle over slavery rather than states' rights, an idea that remains prevalent today.

"What a wonderful, welcome book. Zeitz has pulled off a difficult task—revealing how the myth of Lincoln came to be without distorting the true greatness of our extraordinary 16th President."—Ken Burns
