Lincoln's Youth Paper
First published in 1959 to mark the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth, Louis A. Warren's classic study of Lincoln's formative years in Indiana tracks his growth from awkward boy to serious young man poised on the brink of a brilliant career. Here are fascinating glimpses of Lincoln's family life, the people he knew, the places he visited, his physical development, and the tragedies he suffered. Perhaps most revealing is Warren's treatment of Lincoln's education, both in the schools he briefly attended and in the books he read, and the influence of Thomas Lincoln in forming the character of his son.
In this classic study of Abraham Lincoln’s formative years in Indiana, Louis A. Warren tracks Lincoln as he grows from an awkward boy to a serious young man poised on the brink of a brilliant career.
