Abraham Lincoln: The War Years [4 volumes]
Harcourt Brace, NY 1940 - "Many men and women, now faded and gone, lived this book before it could be written. They do and say in these pages what they did and said in life - as seen and known to the eyes and ears, the mind and spirit, of themselves or other men and women of their own time. Some of them spoke with action, some with words, some with both action and words. What they say in words, within quotation marks, in these pages, is from sources deemed authentic. What they say by act or deed is often beyond fathoming, because it happened in a time of great storm." [Foreword by Sandburg] ". William Tecumseh Sherman (head of the Military Academy of Louisiana) wept.on Christmas Eve (1861). And to a Southern friend he said: 'The North can make a steam-engine, locomotive or railway car; hardly a yard of cloth or a pair of shoes can you make. You are rushing into war with one of the most powerful, ingeniously mechanical and determined people on earth - right at your doors. You are bound to fail." [Opening chapter p.4] Four volumes in polished buckram. One of the greatest works written about Lincoln. Sandburg was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in History (1940) for "The War Years."
