"He Knew Lincoln" portrays the human traits of Lincoln's character. It shows his humor, illustrated in the famous story of the Socks, his great friendliness, and the sorrow and loneliness which encompassed him in the midst of his enormous activity, because of the terrible responsibility of his position.

"Father Abraham" depicts Lincoln as the Father of the Union Army, the man who was so interested in the boys in blue that he spent much of his time in associating with them, and knew more of the army than any general. Lincoln's conception of the war and his idea of duty in connection with it are splendidly brought out.
