This four-volume set by Carl Sandburg encompasses more than 2,000 pages covering the War Years under President Abraham Lincoln. The work Sandburg has given us is not only a biography of Lincoln and a history of the Civil War. It is itself a battlefield, a sprawling panorama of people and issues and conflicts held together only by Sandburg's absorption with the central figure. Sandburg's "Lincoln" has become an inexhaustible storehouse from which has been drawn a myriad of other Lincolns. These volumes contain 426 half-tones of photographs and 244 cuts of cartoons, letters, and documents.
