I received this DRC free in exchange for an honest review. Thanks go to Net Galley and Open Road Integrated Media for letting me read it; Donald won the Pulitzer for his Lincoln biography, and I was sure this series of essays written for the purpose of dismantling myths surrounding the most revered president ever to occupy the White House would be hidden treasure rediscovered. What a crushing disappointment. In the introduction, Herbert mentions that his section on abolitionists has drawn a grea [...]

“Lincoln Reconsidered” is a collection of essays on the Civil War Era with a focus, naturally enough, on Abraham Lincoln. They reexamine several aspects of the Lincoln Lore, things that have become standard but deserve a new look. Author David Donald looks at how later politicians have tried to “Get Right With Lincoln” and claim him as their own, and he steps behind the unflattering portrait of Mary created by William Herndon. Donald studies the Abolitionists’ positions and motivations [...]

I must admit that I was very skeptical of this book. However, once I started this collection of essays, I was hooked. What was the most fascinating part was the realization that the political scene hasn't changed in several hundred years. This story about Lincoln and the events that followed his assassination were things I could easily see going on today. I feel that Lincoln was used as a political pawn for years after his death. In fact, the historical view of Lincoln was more attributed to fol [...]

I enjoyed this collection of essays taking a "revisionist" view of Abraham Lincoln. Most of these essays were published many decades ago, but that does not make them any less relevant to anyone studying Lincoln. I enjoyed the detailed examination of many different aspects of Lincoln (his views on the Constitution, his political savvy, his relationship with his wife, etc) Highly recommended for Lincoln fans.

This is an amazing book! Written by the winner of 2 Pulitzer Prizes, the book peels away the myths surrounding Lincoln, one by one. I was astounded by how much trash I believed, indeed, was taught in school. The unsettling result is that I now have no concept of the real Lincoln because even Lincoln manipulated his image. I know what he was NOT. This book is a "must read" for Lincoln/history/Civil War buffs!

Excellent and well presented essays on Lincoln and the Civil War. The essay on Western Literature didn't really fit with the others, but I didn't seem to mind. Requires a fair background in the War and substantial knowledge on Lincoln to understand why the essays were written and why they are important.

I loved this book. As a lover of history, I have read most anything I can get my hands on regarding American History and Abraham Lincoln. This book not only presents what we already know in a different light, but also has tid-bits and facts that have been left out of history books that I have read, such as Abraham Lincoln being a land surveyor at one time. Great read!

After reading Donald's fabulous one-volume biography of Lincoln, from late 1990s in mid 2000s, I bought this revision of his fifty-year old essays on Lincoln. He's pretty good! Kept my attention.Highly recommended.
