A reproduction of materials published by the Missouri Historical Society in 1916 supplemented by articles that were either omitted or only partially reproduced at that time. The author interviewed many people who had known Abraham Lincoln and these little-known accounts flesh out the Lincoln record, particularly about the Lincoln-Douglas debates and interesting testimony on Mary Todd Lincoln and Lincoln family traditions.
