Collates the wartime dispatches, selected letters and personal
reminiscences of Noah Brooks, the "Sacramento Daily Union"
journalist who had direct access to the president, Abraham Lincoln,
during the Civil War. The text provides a singular perspective on
Lincoln's last years and an appraisal of the president's
personality and politics. The information gathered is based on
Brook's almost daily meetings with Lincoln during the last two and
a half years of the war - meetings which allowed Brook to witness
at firsthand Lincoln's actions and his evolving purpose of the war.
The text also reveals much about Washington politics throughout the
period and reflects public opinion in the north about the conduct
of the war.
