Abraham Lincoln

On this day, in 1842, Abraham Lincoln married the love of his life, Mary Todd. He went on to many great things, but I like to believe that this date ranks as one of the best days of his life. Today's freebie presents documents from the life of Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) both through writings by and about Lincoln as well as a large body of publications concerning the issues of the times including slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction, and related topics.
