Abe Lincoln stirs up a lot of passion in this forum. Like most Americans I was taught(indoctrinated?)as a young boy in school that Abe Lincoln was one of the "greatest" presidents. Several people on BB have voiced a disenting view. I must admit they did bring up thought provoking points. So I have decided to study the life of Abe Lincoln to decide for myself who he really was and what he stood for. My questions is what biographies would you recommend? I plan to read at least 3-4 different biographies to try to get a more all-around perspective on the man.
