After the heartbreaking death of his son Willie, Abraham Lincoln and his family fled the gloom that hung over the White House, moving into a small cottage outside Washington, on the grounds of the Solders' Home. This was a residence for disabled military veterans. This book offers a fascinating portrait of Lincoln's stay in this cottage and tells the story of the president's remarkable growth as a national leader and a private man, living in this cottage for a quarter of his presidency. Based on research of rarely tapped resources, this book offers a completely fresh view of Abraham Lincoln - through the window of a place that helped shape his presidency. Includes an index and bibliography. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
