This is a fascinating reproduction of The Autobiography of Abraham Lincoln by Jesse W. Fell entered into the Library of Congress in 1872. Fell, a friend of Lincolns, encouraged Lincoln to document his life and political experiences, and this collection, although not an autobiography in the traditional sense, provides valuable insights into Lincoln's thoughts and perspectives. This collection by Fell includes an extract of a speech delivered by Lincoln in Springfield, Ill on June 15, 1858; The Gettysburg Address; and extract of Lincoln's last Inaugural Address delivered on March 4, 1865; and a short autobiography, written in Lincoln's own hand, of Abraham Lincoln's upbringing and early history as a public figure.
