I couldn’t read the last of Abraham Lincoln by George McGovern, (just out this month), without tears. It’s a short read…181 pages. Yet I found valuable information I hadn’t read before — parts of his speeches I hadn’t read before and many quotes. Without a doubt I found even more to like and appreciate about Lincoln. McGovern does a very good job of showing you what a great man he was. It’s a prize little book. I need to get back to reciting The Gettysburg Address again every day. Also, I hadn’t realized McGovern has a PHD from North Western University in American History and Government.
