30 collectible postcards from the archives of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
When Abraham Lincoln won the presidency in 1860, the country was deeply divided – about slavery and Lincoln himself. Lincoln was alternately portrayed in the press as a hero and villain, a shrewd strategist and hapless fool. This collectible postcard book includes both rare and well-known Lincoln cartoons from the Civil War era. With humor, barbs, and engaging pictures, it highlights the humanity of a great president who had yet to become an American legend.
