Synopsis: When Abraham Lincoln became president of the United States in 1861, he faced the most severe crisis the nation had ever experienced. The Southern states had broken from the Union and formed the Confederate States of America, challenging the authority of the president and threatening the young nation. When Confederate forces opened fire on Fort Sumter, South Carolina, Lincoln called for volunteers to defend the Union. The war between the states — the Civil War — had begun.

Abraham Lincoln: Defender of the Union tells the story of the remarkable man who lead the nation through its bloodiest conflict. Discover how a boy who was born in a one-room log cabin grew up to be a lawyer and later a president. Explore the fight to end slavery and see how Lincoln's bold Emancipation Proclamation changed the course of the war and the nation. Meet the leader determined to preserve the Union, who sought to bring "a new birth of freedom" to all Americans.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-6–Cobblestone magazine has long been known for its excellent coverage of historical topics. These three books are comprised of articles appearing in both Cobblestone and Appleseeds and maintain the reputation for quality, interest, and clarity. The volumes cover narrow topics in a remarkably in-depth manner given their relative brevity. Lincoln, for example, is divided into 13 sections, ranging in length from one to six pages. Coverage is given to Lincolns childhood and courtship of Mary Todd; his family life; the politics surrounding the Civil War (including a lucid and compelling discussion of the Lincoln-Douglas debates and the impact of the Kansas-Nebraska Act and the Dred Scott decision); Lincolns personality and character; the steps he took to create a stronger nation; his assassination; and the various acts of homage to him. Pages are arranged so that the numerous illustrations and sidebars do not distract from the blocks of text. The period illustrations and photos are well placed and extend the text beautifully, and the central map presents the United States, as it existed between 1861 and 1865, with Confederate and Union states noted, as well as territories, battlefields, cities, state capitols, and other important locations. Similar in content and subject matter to books in the We the People series (Compass Point) dealing with the Civil War, these books are superior in both the quality of the text and the illustrations. These excellent introductory titles could be expanded by referring students to Russell Freedmans Lincoln: A Photobiography (1987) or Jim Murphys The Boys War (1990, both Clarion).–Ann Welton, Grant Elementary School, Tacoma, WA
