I'm interested in researching Lincoln. Ideas?

by NumbrOneAunt on March 28, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

i've always been fascinated by abraham lincoln, and yesterday i realized that i would like to do in-depth research, just for my own enjoyment. i'm already aware of the biography by david herbert donald that has long been considered definitive. i'm also aware of "team of rivals" by doris kearns goodwin. if anyone has any suggestions for other books and/or research methods, i'd be very grateful.
