Booklist Description (PUT BLURBS FOR BOOKLISTS HERE): 

Pressed for time? The late George McGovern wrote a concise 208 page biography of Lincoln as part of the Times Books American Presidents Series. McGovern hits the high points in Lincoln’s career, each of which was marked by a famous speech. The author is not afraid to point out some of the short cuts Lincoln took with civil liberties during the Civil War, however.
