Lincoln had a Cabinet full of remarkable men in their own right, and they helped — or hindered — the president as he strove mightily toward his goal. Noted popular historian Doris Kearns Goodwin attempts to paint the full portrait of the collective Lincoln presidency in her new book Team of Rivals. On the whole, she succeeds admirably.

Allan Nevins, The War for the Union, Volume II, p. Furthermore, had the Civil War ended with a different outcome, Lincoln and many of his generals would have been deservedly tried as war criminals.

Donald brilliantly depicts Lincoln’s gradual ascent from humble beginnings in rural Kentucky to the ever-expanding political circles in Illinois, and finally to the presidency of a country divided by civil war. Abraham Lincoln - Abraham Lincoln - Postwar policy: At the end of the war, Lincoln’s policy for the defeated South was not clear in all its details, though he continued to believe that the main object should be to restore the “seceded States, so-called,” to their “proper practical relation” with the Union as soon as possible.
