summary
Evans explains that few men grew “as much as Lincoln did between 1830 and 1865, or even as much as he did between 1840 and 1865,” and he suspected that Mary had much to do with this.  Evans set out to learn more about the woman, understand her, and discuss the influence she had upon her husband.
