Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States, was born in a log cabin in 1809. A self-educated man, he became a lawyer and in 1847 entered Congress as a representative of Illinois.

One day a woman approached President Lincoln, demanding a colonel’s commission for her son. “My grandfather fought at Lexington, my father fought at New Orleans, my husband was killed at Monterey. I ask commission not as a favor, but as a right.”

“I guess, madam,” replied Lincoln, “your family has done enough for this country. It’s time to give someone else a chance.”

The Civil War had a greater impact on America than any other event in the country’s history. It was also the most traumatic experience endured by any generation of Americans. At least 620,000 soldiers lost their lives in the war. Out of the ashes of that conflict rose a nation stronger than the one before.

Our Civil War reprints are produced on archival paper and bound in sturdy buckram with gold lettering. They include complete text, photos, maps and charts – and can be proudly displayed in your personal library.

THE HIGGINSON BOOK COMPANY has been publishing reprints of rare and out-of-print genealogies, local histories, Civil War regimentals and maps for over 40 years. Satisfaction is guaranteed, or your money is refunded.
