Abraham Lincoln. More has been written about him than any other American. Still few Americans know about Lincolns resolve to become educated. He used every opportunity to read history and great literature and he taught himself skills that would be useful in life. In that process, he developed a profound devotion to the history of his country and to its founders. A devotion that turned the declaration of independence from a relic of the American revolution into a living instrument that fundamentally formed the creed America adopted that helped make all men and women free. This is that story of Abraham Lincoln.

—Introduction By Kent Masterson Brown

 

“Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the constitution originally placed it let us disgard all this quibbling about this man and the other man, this race and that race and the other race being inferior and unite as one people throughout this land until we can once more stand up and declare all men are created equal”
— Abraham Lincoln
