William H. Herndon on Lincoln’s Fatalism
I have the Dover Thrift Edition of Abraham Lincoln's Great Speeches which whet my appetite and curiosity for more communications of this great leader. My appetite was whet even more by the movie "Lincoln". I believe that if our current politicians had the ability to communicate as well as Lincoln and the time to write their own speeches and letters there would be less follow-up explanations and retractions.
I'm sure there are many, including the recipient, who disagreed with the views offered in this letter; but I don't think anyone could mistake the views of the person writing the letter. One needs to be aware that these are 'selected' offerings and that some of the speeches are edited for brevity.
I have just begun to persue a look into what this man said and its impact on our history and our current situation.

I believe that this book will serve me well in that 'look' and would heartily recommend it. Permissions Icon Permissions. Issue Section:. You do not currently have access to this article. Download all figures. Sign in.
