RECOLLECTIONS OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN 1847-1865 BY WARD HILL LAMON (1828 - 1893) EDITED BY DOROTHY LAMON TEILLARD .

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/recollections-of-abraham-lincoln-1847-1865-by-ward-hill-lamon

Abraham Lincoln came to the presidency under a heavy shroud of uncertainty, not only about his threatened life but, of course, the very existence of the United States, which was already falling apart. Ward Hill Lamon was, in effect, one of his first Secret Service agents, a friend, fellow lawyer and security guard. This biography, heavily edited by his daughter, Dorothy Lamon Teillard (some say TOO heavily edited) sets down for posterity many details surrounding Lincoln's near-fatal journey to his inauguration, how he dealt with day to day presidential decisions and a wide range of interpersonal relationships with the visionaries, schemers and power-brokers surrounding him. (John Greenman)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
