Review

"A wonderful book, as witty as it is wise. Addressing every question that conceivable can be raised about Abraham Lincoln, Gerald Prokopowicz provides answers that are short, accurate, and in many instances highly amusing."
--David Herbert Donald, author of "Lincoln
""From his birth to his death (not to mention the century and a half since), here is everything one ever wanted to know about Abraham Lincoln, told authoritatively and entertainingly by a fine scholar and gifted writer. Facts are reported, myths punctured, and controversies analyzed in a text that proves both an essential reference and a page-turning good read."
--Harold Holzer, cochairman, Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission
"Of the thousands of books about Lincoln (you can get the exact number, and many other facts, from this book), very few bring us as much information, and none is more pleasantly amusing. If you have any interest in Lincoln and start reading this book, you will have a hard time stopping."
--William Lee Miller, author of "Lincoln's Virtues: An Ethical Biography" and "President Lincoln: The Duty of a Statesman
""Witty, intelligent, and informative, "Did Lincoln Own Slaves? "is a book that every level of Lincoln student--from grade school to scholar--will find useful. Prokopowicz has provided accurate answers to the essential questions about our sixteenth president; no more digging around in the Lincoln library is required."
--Jean H. Baker, author of "Mary Todd Lincoln"
