John George Nicolay (February 26, 1832 – September 26, 1901) was a German-born American who served as private secretary to US President Abraham Lincoln and later co-authored a biography of the 16th President. He was a member of the German branch of the Nicolay family. He was born Johann Georg Nicolai in Essingen, Rhenish Bavaria. In 1838, he immigrated to the United States with his father and attended school in Cincinnati

The law office where Hay worked was next door to Abraham Lincoln's law office and, as a result of their close proximity, Hay and the future president became acquaintances. Lincoln was elected president of the United States in 1861 and he chose John Nicolay, Hay's childhood classmate, as his secretary. His literary work includes Pike County Ballads and Other Pieces, a book of poems; the novel The Bread-Winners; and Abraham Lincoln: A History, a historical non-fiction book co-written by John Nicolay.

The official biography of Abraham Lincoln, who was the sixteenth President of the United States of America. It is a definitive resource on Lincoln and his times, and was written by John Hay and John George Nicolay. John Milton Hay (1838-1905) was an American statesman, diplomat, author, journalist, and private secretary and assistant to Abraham Lincoln. Hay was born in Salem, Indiana, of Scottish ancestry, raised in Warsaw, Illinois, and educated at Brown University (1858), where he joined Theta Delta Chi. In 1861 he was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Illinois. He began his public career as a secretary to Abraham Lincoln at age 22, while technically a clerk in the Interior Department. Hay was present when President Lincoln died after being shot at Ford's Theatre. Hay and John G. Nicolay wrote a formal 10-volume biography of Lincoln and prepared an edition of his collected works. He was the author of Castilian Days (1871), Pike County Ballads and Other Poems (1871), The Bread-Winners (1884), Abraham Lincoln: A History (1890), and Poems (1897).

this volume covers the lead-up to Lincoln's inaugural, beginning with the war with mexico more than 14 years earlier. pretty incredible reading for anyone.

This body of work was commissioned by Robert todd Lincoln. He felt like this biography was the only one before his death in 1926, that was the whole complete work about his father. John Hay and John Nicolay were Lincoln's personal secretaries while he was president. robert turned over all the papers he had on his father to them and collaberated with them in the writing of this body of work that was published in 1894. these works are still being referred to, in various footnotes to many good writings today such as Team Of Rivals (the movie, Lincoln, was based on this book. this set is a must for a very complete personal library on Mr. Lincoln.

Well written documented commentary of Lincoln's life and impact upon our society, government and military.

More books have been written about Abraham Lincoln than any other president---or perhaps any human being in history--but none approach the human being and the cataclysmic period that shaped his life and forever changed America than those written by his closest confidants, John Hay (his secretary) and John Nicolay (assistant secretary).

History is much richer when viewed through the eyes of men and women who actually lived through it, biographers or historians who were alive and knew the flesh-and-blood people who transformed America or the world. Imagine, for instance, (former Chief Justice) John Marshall's Life of George Washington and William L. Sherer The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

As powerful as those histories have proved, neither Marshall nor Sherer ever got closer to their subjects than Hay and Nicolay. These men saw and chronicled the life and times of Lincoln every day of his presidency. Up close and personal.

During their lifetime, these two men produced (originally in serial form a ten-volume opus describing Lincoln's early life and career, events leading to the Civil War--volumes one and two--and the period encompassing the war itself--volumes three through ten. The Halycon Classics book is the first two volumes.

Make no mistake about it, the Civil War was fought about slavery. Its genesis can be traced to the earliest days of the Republic and like a cancer metastasizing, it became inevitable as the young country expanded westward into new territories. For decades, political power had been in stasis with the number of slave states and the number of free states being equal but that equilibrium was shattered as new areas like Kansas sought to become territories, the Missouri Compromise was upended, and the Dred Scott decision threatened to shred the Constitution in the name of that same document. Lincoln's election may have proved to be the catalyst but the battle for America's soul was already at hand.

The first two volumes (included in the reviewed book) is essential reading for anyone interested in American history.

Buyer beware: although not labeled as such, this is only the first of what must have been intended as a multi-volume set. This goes from Lincoln's lineage through the early days of the Sumter crisis, prior to the inauguration.
The title is deceptive. This collection contains ten volumes. This is only volume four. Anyone buying this product thinking it is the complete collection will be disappointed. This flaw is not reflected on the cover, which is a breach in proper advertising.
