Lincoln's White House : The People's House in Wartime, Hardback Book

Lincoln's White House : The People's House in Wartime Hardback

Description

Co-winner of the 2017 Gilder Lehrman Lincoln PrizeLincoln's White House is the first book devoted to capturing the look, feel, and smell of the executive mansion from Lincoln's inauguration in 1861 to his assassination in 1865.

James Conroy brings to life the people who knew it, from servants to cabinet secretaries.

We see the constant stream of visitors, from ordinary citizens to visiting dignitaries and diplomats.

Conroy enables the reader to see how the Lincolns lived and how the administration conducted day-to-day business during four of the most tumultuous years in American history.

Relying on fresh research and a character-driven narrative and drawing on untapped primary sources, he takes the reader on a behind-the-scenes tour that provides new insight into how Lincoln lived, led the government, conducted war, and ultimately, unified the country to build a better government of, by, and for the people.
