During my 33 years of teaching and a quarter of century of portraying Abraham Lincoln on the stage, in the movies and on TV I did my very best to present the second millennium's most beloved person in as truthful and artistic manner as possible. Honestly Abe is the fruit of a half century of research, teaching and artistic endeavor. Its publication is in response to numerous requests from my students and audiences to put to paper what I did in the classroom and before my audiences. This book is an extension of my work to a much larger audience and furthers my basic belief that when you know a great person better, it makes you and our world much greater.
