Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) was one of the most influential presidents of the USA, uniting the country and abolishing slavery after a terrible civil war. The story of his remarkable rise from a poor farming background to triumph, in one of the most challenging presidencies in US history, and sudden tragic death, is told in this audiobook. It also includes a varied selection of his major speeches, and a collection of revealing letters, which demonstrate his natural eloquence and humanity. This portrait shows Lincoln to be a man of principle, with keen intelligence balanced by a vision and determination - certainly one of the most outstanding men in American history.
