Mr Lincon's Wars: A Novel in Thirteen Stories
"Mr Lincoln's Wars: A Novel in Thirteen Stories" and "Lincoln"

Today is Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birthday. While considering his life, presidency and legacy, I pulled a couple of books from my bookshelf that I think are worth recommending. If you’ve read either of these or can recommend others, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Mr. Lincoln’s Wars: A Novel in Thirteen Stories

The thirteen stories told by Adam Braver are sometimes heartbreaking, often inspiring and all moving.


For a complete biography of Lincoln’s life, you can’t go wrong with this book by David Herbert Donald.

“And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln.

Happy birthday, Mr. President.
