More About Lincoln's Boys by Joshua Zeitz
 
 
 
Overview
From the author of the forthcoming Building the Great Society (February 2018), 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.
