I'm blogging about Larry Tagg's new tome "The Battles that Made Abraham Lincoln-How Lincoln Mastered his Enemies to Win the Civil War, Free the Slaves, and Preserve the Union". Old Honest Abe is a lot like the Puffman now days...that is to say, "Lincoln is hot", thanks to the great new flick that's making the theater circuit this winter. Today, Lincoln is a beloved American icon, widely considered to be our best president. It was not always so. Larry's book is the 1st study of its kind to concentrate on what Lincoln's contemporaries thought of him during his lifetime, & the obstacles they set before him. And Obama thinks HE has problems! Be forewarned; your preconceived notions are about to be shattered when you check out this great new page turner from publisher Savas Beatie...Savas Beatie!!!...perhaps a good name for a new age band! Visit their website for more on this Lincoln read at www.savasbeatie.com & join me this afternoon (Monday) for my Puffman Musical Trivia contest. 1st caller in with the correct answer wins the Lincoln book.
