Overview
An intimate look into Lincoln s White House and the aftermath of his death, via the lives of his two closest aides
In this timely look into Abraham Lincoln s White House, and the aftermath of his death, noted historian and political advisor Joshua Zeitz presents a fresh perspective on the sixteenth U.S. president as seen through the eyes of Lincoln s two closest aides and confidants, John Hay and John Nicolay. Lincoln s official secretaries, Hay and Nicolay enjoyed more access, witnessed more history, and knew Lincoln better than anyone outside of the president s immediate family. They were the gatekeepers of Lincoln s legacy. Drawing on letters, diaries, and memoirs, Lincoln s Boys is part political drama and part coming-of-age tale a fascinating story of friendship, politics, war, and the contest over history and remembrance."
