David Herbert Donald, We Are Lincoln Men, Inscribed and Signed

Offers a Fresh Way of Looking at Abraham Lincoln




David Herbert Donald’s We are Lincoln Men: Lincoln Among His Friends is a brilliant and illuminating portrait of our sixteenth president.

Donald,  two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner, examines the significance of friendship in Abraham Lincoln’s life and the role it played in shaping his career and his presidency.

Though Abraham Lincoln had hundreds of acquaintances and dozens of admirers, he had almost no intimate friends. Behind his mask of affability and endless stream of humorous anecdotes, he maintained an inviolate reserve that only a few were ever able to penetrate.

Professor Donald’s remarkable book offers a fresh way of looking at Abraham Lincoln, both as a man who needed friendship and as a leader who understood the importance of friendship in the management of men. Donald penetrates Lincoln’s mysterious reserve to offer a new picture of the president’s inner life and to explain his unsurpassed political skills.
