Summary: The third title in the Creators of the American Mind Series, Abraham Lincoln: The Man and the Myth, provides an accurate but novel approach to Lincoln and his place in American history. This book presents Lincoln as a man, a flesh-and-blood individual, by letting him speak for himself and by providing comments about him by his contemporaries as well as by Lincoln scholars who have studied him from various historical perspectives. The book places Lincoln in his ...show moretorical perspective by following his rise through nineteenth-century history and politics, his conduct of the Civil War while he was president, the act of emancipation of the slaves, his assassination and its effects on the nation, his posthumous elevation to a central place in American political mythology, all using contemporary documents and the writings of Lincoln scholars. This book is in-depth enough to present a complete picture of Lincoln the Man and the Myth yet brief enough to serve as a supplement to a larger textbook on American history.

  • Demonstrates through the words of poets and orators as well as the assessments of historians, how Lincoln, after his tragic death, came to reflect the highest ideals of the Americans who followed him. How he became a Creator of the American Mind.
  • The text offers, at appropriate intervals, analyses of the material being examined, summations of that material, and questions that teachers and students may use for responsive, reflective essays or discussions of the material.
  • Featured at the end of the book are a number of topics for extended essays and/or term papers on all of the materials in the book.
  • The text provides a selected annotated bibliography on Lincoln so that students may dig more deeply into areas of Lincoln's life covered briefly or merely suggested in the book.
