Real history," John Hay declared, "is told in private letters. No man should ever destroy one that contains light on public men or public affairs. The 227 surviving letters and telegrams that Hay wrote during the Civil War are a case in point. Like his Civil War diary, they shed an unusually bright light on Abraham Lincoln.

This book is full of helpful footnotes and back-of-book explanatory material, including a
fascinating appendix on Mrs. Lincoln's character, or lack thereof. If you enjoy personal
glimpses of major personalities in the Lincoln era, you will find much here. I applaud
the most helpful back-of-book footnotes guides I've ever seen.
If footnotes can't appear at bottom of page (where, let's face it, they are most helpful)
this is the way to give the reader easy access. Atop each page in the footnotes section
is the range of page numbers where citations occur in the text.

Hay was a close associate of President Lincoln throughout his presidency keeping his own log of the presidents days and the issues confronting him. Professor Burlingame has selected the military issues and generals which Lincoln had to deal with. McCleland turned into a weak military leader with his own dreams of taking over and ran against Lincoln in the second campaign. The three day battle of Gettysburg is a strength of the book and of course the appointment of Grant, the future president.
