Summary
Lincolns White House is the first book devoted to capturing the look, feel, and smell of the executive mansion from Lincolns inauguration in 1861 to his assassination in 1865. We see the constant stream of visitors, from ordinary citizens to visiting dignitaries and diplomats. Relying on fresh research and a character-driven narrative and drawing on untapped primary sources, Conroy takes the reader on a behind-the-scenes tour that provides new insight into how Lincoln lived, led the government, conducted war, and ultimately, unified the country to build a better government of, by, and for the people
