From the Publisher:

"An erudite analysis of certain unrealities which have grown to be accepted as Gospel truths in the average American's thinking about Lincoln and the Civil War."--The Atlantic Monthly

From the Back Cover:

Lincoln Reconsidered is "...a gentle assessment, a common sense, witty, and erudite analysis of certain unrealities which have grown to be accepted as Gospel truths in the average American's thinking about Lincoln and the Civil War. It is a book which had to be written, and it could not have been written with more wisdom, better documentation or more charm than in Mr. Donald's Essays on the Civil War Era."-- R. E. Danielson in The Atlantic
