Professional reviews

"John McDonough's magisterial narration gives listeners a sense of the remarkable life and shocking death of the nation's greatest president. McDonough vividly delivers Lincoln's debates, speeches, and proclamations. The text, by esteemed Civil War historian James M. McPherson, takes listeners on a fast-paced review of Lincoln's early career in law and traces the significant ups and downs of his political life. Lincoln's rise to national power, his melancholy, his marriage, his ambition, his trials as a war leader and manager of a Cabinet of immense egos are detailed, and his place in history is affirmed in this eloquent audiobook, which commemorates the 200th anniversary of his birth.
