"An elegant, incisive study....Goodwin has brilliantly described how Lincoln forged a team that preserved a nation and freed America from the curse of slavery" (James M. McPherson, The New York Times Book Review). It went on to win the 2006 Lincoln Prize and the inaugural Book Prize for American History of the New-York Historical Society. It was the basis for the 2012 film, "Lincoln," directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Daniel Day-Lewis; and went on to win two Academy Awards.
