Lincoln: A Photobiography
Russell Freedman
1988 Newbery Medal Winner Abraham Lincoln stood out in a crowd as much for his wit and rollicking humor as for his height. This Newbery Medal-winning biography of our Civil War president is warm, appealing, and illustrated with dozens of carefully chosen photographs and prints.Russell Freedman begins with a lively account of Abraham Lincoln's boyhood, his career as a country lawyer, and his courtship and marriage to Mary Todd. Then the author focuses on the presidential years (1861 to 1865), skillfullly explaining the many complex issues Lincoln grappled with as he led a deeply divided nation through the Civil War. The book's final chapter is a moving account of that tragic evening in Ford's Theatre on April 14, 1865. Concludes with a sampling of Lincoln writings and a detailed list of Lincoln historical sites.This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 2-3, Read Aloud Informational Text).Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Russell FreedmanPublisher: Clarion BooksPublished: 09/25/1989ISBN: 9780395518489Pages: 160Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 8.90h x 7.50w x 0.50dReview Citations: Booklist 01/01/2001 pg. 979Christian Retailing 08/23/2004 pg. 38Publishers Weekly 10/13/1989Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 238 / Lincoln: A PhotobiographyReading Level: 7.7 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 5
