The Lincoln scholar, Lloyd Lewis, wrote in The New York Herald Tribune, "It has been the best research job yet done on Lincoln-possibly on any American...There has probably never been such a summoning of witnesses before in American literature or law, no such marshaling of incident, such sifting of rumor, such collecting of evidence, eye-witness and hearsay, as the author here produces...In the thirty-odd years across which he has been collecting Lincolniana, Sandburg has gone everywhere he heard a Lincoln letter or an observation on the man might be stored. And his product is, like his poems, a singularly eloquent use of contemporary anecdote and language."
