Very engaging biography on Lincoln, detailing his philosophy, religiosity, and general thought life. Guelzo does well in showing Lincoln to be a man of deep convictions as well as showing how those convictions morphed over time. At different times in this nation's history since Lincoln, it seems nearly every group has wanted to claim him as their own. Guelzo shows that Lincoln doesn't neatly fit into anyone's box.
