MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Mary Todd] had taken a fancy to Mr. Lincoln and I always thought she did most of the courting until they became engaged.


"After an engagement of perhaps a year or so a Miss Matilda Edwards came to spend a winter...


"Mr. Lincoln became very much attached to her, (Miss Matilda Edwards) and finally fell desperately in love with her, and proposed to her, but she rejected him...


"I think that Mr. Lincoln' s aberration of mind resulted entirely from the situation he thus got himself into-- he was engaged to Miss Todd, and in love with Miss Edwards, and his conscience troubled him dreadfully for the supposed injustice he had done... "-- From an interview with O. H. Browning


" [T]his collection is important and contains as much new information on Lincoln as anyone is apt to find at this late date. I commend [Burlingame] for bringing these interviews to light." -- "The Journal of Southern History"

Burlingame' s editorial work is solid. . . . Lincoln scholars should find this volume useful because of the information it brings together in one place and stimulating because of the larger questions it raises concerning the use of historical evidence." -- "Civil War History"

" Who Lincoln was and who people remember him to be are often diametrically opposed. It is books like this . . . that are must-reads for everyone interested in Lincoln. . . . [A]n excellent contribution." -- "Illinois"" Historical Journal"
" Burlingame has done a masterful job in selecting and editing these hidden treasures of first-person narratives on the life and person of Abraham Lincoln. The insights revealed . . . are invaluable." -- "Midwest"" Book Review"
