On this day 150 years ago Abraham Lincoln's life was ended by an assassin's bullet. Rather than think about that tragedy, let's spend some time remembering the life of that great president. Many books have been written about Lincoln, and we're recommending to you one that is in the Bullis Collection:
Lincoln and Men of War Times
by A. K. McClure
published in Philadelphia by The Times Publishing Co., 1892
A. K. McClure wrote from his perspective as an editor of the Philadelphia Times and a Republican powerbroker of the day. He included in his book a facsimile of Lincoln's May 23, 1860 letter to the president of the Republican National Committee, in which he accepted their nomination of him as its presidential candidate for that year.
