Summary
"With a brief account of their first years in the White House and the complete collection of all the known letters exchanged by Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, this portrait defines the sixteenth president as a dedicated - though often a desperately busy and distracted - family man." "Lincoln at Home is an intimate and rare glimpse of the president as husband and father, a cheerful man pinned to the floor while playing with his children, and a desolate man struck down with grief at the death of his son. Beyond this, we are shown a personal side of the man who managed one of the most difficult periods in American history."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
Collections of letters between the president and his family and accounts of their first few years in the White House reveal Lincoln's personal side as a dedicated husband and father
