Overwhelmed by the sheer number of Lincoln biographies? Don’t know where to start?
Lincoln is probably my favorite American president, and Abraham Lincoln books far outnumber those about any other US president. Here are ten of the best biographies.
4. Abraham Lincoln: A Life (Volume 1)
Abraham Lincoln: A Life (Volume 2)
by Michael Burlingame
Likely the most extensively-researched biography of Lincoln, this two-volume work particularly excels in its depiction of Lincoln’s younger years.
