Abraham Lincoln The Prairie Years The War Years One Volume Edition review Æ 103 Civil War and history buffs as well as all lovers of fine writing will delight in the detail and accuracy of Carl Sandburg's definitive best known biography of Honest Abe Representing a lifetime of study by the great American poet Abraham Lincoln T. This is a biography of Lincoln by the esteemed poet Carl Sandburg I was born just up the road US Route 34 in Kewanee from his home town of Galesburg Illinois Thus I have always had a soft spot for this version of Lincoln s life As a poet Sandburg s version tends to be epic and mythical and less critical in its examination of Lincoln For all of that the book still works well The first part The Prairie Years recounts Lincoln s youth and early career before he attained the presidency The story of course starts with his family settling in Kentucky where Lincoln was born in 1809 Later he moved with his family to Illinois Lincoln began in New Salem and later moved to Springfield Sandburg s depiction of his development to becoming a practiced attorney his political ambitions his brief time in the militia lays out the standard treatment of Lincoln written extraordinarily well Many anecdotes dot the volume We see his doomed relationship with Ann Rutledge and his rocky courtship of Mary Todd The discussion of his famous debates with Stephen Douglas in the Senate Campaign that brought him national visibility and rendered him viable as a potential presidential candidate is well told Then the work goes on to explore his place in the Civil War The volume speak poignantly of the family tragedy that he experienced the death of a child is always difficult the strained relationship with his wife the challenges of orchestrating the Union s war effort In a sense this is a poetic lyric romanticized view of Lincoln It could scarcely be anything else I think given Sandburg s perspective Nonetheless for that this is still a compelling work and worth a read
