New Lincoln Book
The new Lincoln: Fresh from Abraham's Bosom books arrived last Friday. This is a new book I've edited from an 1864 edition of a Lincoln story and joke book. First written during Lincoln's re-election campaign when it wasn't certain if neither him nor the North would win, the book's anecdotes reveal just how special our country's 16th president really was. I've added a new introduction, footnotes to provide more information on the individuals and battles mentioned, and an index.

The book is 80-page paperback trimmed 5.5" x 8.5". Ordering information on it as well as the Handbook of Old Gallatin County and Southeastern Illinois can be found at
