KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of Lincoln the man as known to the colored people who lived and worked by his side, his steward, Billy the barber, the butler, the cook, one of his bodyguards, and others. Washington from childhood had listened to stories and anecdotes in his own family and among their friends, and when he reached maturity he determined to add this facet to the record. The result is thin-but the attempt is an estimable one -- a memorial from the race he helped to save.
