Abraham Lincoln tackled slavery and secession as no President before him had and perhaps as no President after him would have. With unshakeable determination and an iron will, Lincoln ended slavery, kept the Union in tact and set an inimitable standard for all world leaders who would succeed him, both in the United
states and abroad. Suitable for research on the 16th President, this faux-autobiography is gripping and engaging, written in real time as though the President were speaking directly to students. It is an educational and revealing supplement to social studies curricula. PARCC formatted questions and an essay are included for assessment." My goal is to make reading an irresistible passion of all students."
