The Kent State University Press colophon
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

“Someof today’smostinfluential Lincoln historians,includingDouglasL.Wilson and Allen C. Guelzo, first introduced their trailblazing findings in Civil War History . Forinclusion in this anthology, John Hubbell has judiciouslyselected gems from among the many Lincoln-related articles that ran in that indispensable journal, covering topics ranging from emancipation to military strategy, from important public documents to significant private concerns. Space is granted to both laudatory and critical voices. Lincoln buffs and professional historians alike will welcome the publication of this valuable anthology.” Michael Burlingame, author of Abraham Lincoln: A Life “These extraordinary essays, culled from more than 500 from Civil War History’s long-serving editor, are timely and as refreshing as when first published. All are chock-full of information that serves us well. In these beautifully written articles, the authors cover all of the important issues confronted by President Abraham Lincoln, from leadership and the military to race, the first draft in American history, dissent, and the women of the Middle Period. This volume is a major contribution to the more than 16,000 books written about our most respected chief magistrate.” Frank J. Williams, Founding Chair of The Lincoln Forum and retired Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court “John Hubbell and the Kent State University Press have brought together and conveniently made available fifteen important articles on Lincoln from past issues of Civil War History, the premier journal for the period. Written by leading authorities on Lincoln and the Civil War, most of the articles appropriately focus on the main issues involving Lincoln’s presidency. Professor Hubbell, also a prominent historian, provides an insightful assessment of each article’s contribution to our understanding of Lincoln’s career and role in the Civil War. Readers interested in this great president will want to have a copy of this book on their desk.” William C.
