About A House Divided

A House Divided began at Abraham Lincoln Book Shop, Inc. in 2005 when Daniel Weinberg created Virtual Book Signing.

Having offered well over 100 titles, the program features live-streamed interviews with leading authors in the subjects of Lincoln, U.S. Civil War, Presidential and Military History. Having specialized in these subjects since 1938, we are well-suited to offer entertaining and well-informed interviews of major authors in those fields.

Viewers may ask the author a question via the Comments feature on the show’s page, or at the “livestream” on our Facebook page.

You also may order a signed copy of the featured title: before, during, or after the show (while supplies last).  They will be signed on our shop’s special book plates featuring our logo – originally conceived by author and poet Carl Sandburg.

Afterwards the programs are available at YouTube, Facebook, and here at our website, so you can watch again and again.

The broadcast often features an historical artifact related to the book, allowing you to see some of the fascinating items available at the shop.  A true virtual visit!
