Honest Abe, The Great Emancipator, The Martyr: Abraham Lincoln was perhaps America's greatest President. He is also deeply beloved by many, who are inspired by Lincoln's unwavering sense of justice and willingness to fight for his beliefs. Young readers will marvel at Lincoln's path to greatness from his humble beginnings as a poor Illinois rail splitter up through his election as America's 16th President, and into the dark days of the Civil War leading to his tragic assassination. In addition to background on his childhood and his marriage to Mary Todd, numerous sidebars provide simple explanations to relevant historical events such as the Dred Scott Decision and the Mexican Wars.
