“An intimate portrait of <_st13a_place _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_city _w3a_st="on">Lincoln, so well-drawn that he seems to come alive on the page.”
—<_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Charleston Post & Courier<_o3a_p>


Lincoln’s Men by Daniel Mark Epstein offers a fascinating close-up view of the Abraham Lincoln White House through the eyes of <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Lincoln’s three personal secretaries: John Nicolay, William Stoddard, and John Hay. Like Doris Kearns Goodwin’s monumental New York Times bestseller, Team of Rivals, Epstein’s Lincoln’s Men sheds a new light on the 16th U.S. president—his brilliance and vision in a time of national turmoil and Civil War—by focusing on his relationships with the men who worked closely by his side. USA Today writes, “This is not your typical work of history. Epstein, a poet, employs a dreamy, novelistic tone in describing these young men and their tormented boss.”<_o3a_p>

Daniel Mark Epstein has written more than fifteen books of poetry, biography, and history, including the award-winningLincolnandWhitman and The Lincolns: Portrait of a Marriage, named one of the top ten books of the year by theWall Street JournalandChicago Sun-Times.
