The Women In Lincoln's Life. It originated in a talk I prepared at the request of President George Bush and delivered in the White House on January 7, 1990, as the inaugural lecture in the Presidential Lecture Series. Lincoln President-Elect: Abraham Lincoln and the Great Secession Winter 1860-1861. Making it clear that he was in no way trying to restrict my subject matter, the president expressed the hope that I would concentrate on the domestic life of the Lincolns in the White House, in whose history he and Mrs. Bush had such a deep interest.

The tumultuous experiences Abraham Lincoln had with women have long been chronicled. Lincoln's Ladies attempts to answer the questions of how he was affected by the women in his life and how he affected them. Abandoned through death by his mother, his sister, and his sweetheart, Ann Rutledge, Lincoln found it difficult to relate to women and developed an emotional barrier that often antagonized them. Abstract and cool, he feared intimacy and marriage and, following Ann Rutledge's untimely death, was incapable of loving anyone the way he had loved her, probably the only woman with whom he shared a deep and wonderful love. Lincoln fumbled his way through other courtships and was turned down at least twice. He then stumbled into a strange relationship with Mary Todd--one culminated by marriage through her trickery and his sense of honor."" Lincoln's marriage to her was his greatest tragedy, ""a burning, scorching hell as terrible as death and as gloomy as the grave,"" said William Herndon, Lincoln's partner and biographer. According to H. Donald Winkler, Lincoln's emotions and motivations were shaped from a mixture of crippling and energizing experiences associated with women, experiences that profoundly affected his personal and professional lives. Lincoln's Ladies explores the impact of more than thirty women on his life. Not overlooked, however, are the positive impacts of women on Lincoln and he on them, especially his stepmother, who probably was the first person to treat him with respect and glimpse his potential.""

Goes into as much detail as possible about Nancy Hank Lincoln, Abe's mother, given that just about all that is known about her came from letters and interviews conducted by William Herndon, Lincoln's law partner, conducted in 1866-67, nearly 50 years after Nancy died in 1818. Also presents a VERY detailed account of Lincoln's romance with Ann Rutledge, based on letters and interviews with her siblings, parents, and mutual friends from Lincoln's days in New Salem, IL. Presents a very interesting case for Lincoln marrying Mary Todd because he felt "honor-bound" to do it rather than due to being in love with her, although a bond of mutual affection developed after the marriage. Fascinating book, presenting more detail about Lincoln's childhood and early life than anything else I have ever read.

This is an excellent book that enables one to understand the women in Abraham Lincoln's life. Although the most important person in his life was Anne Rutledge, the question will always be left hanging on what sort of person Abraham Lincoln and his life would have turned out to be had Anne lived long enough for them to have got married and raised a family. That his married life really was a disaster goes without question. It appears that he was a very patient person or perhaps in those days, looking after one's interests was not as prominent as it is today, when people have become more selfish and self centered. If I was in his shoes, I certainly would not have tolerated living with Mary Todd for all those years being utterly in constant unhappiness (honor or no honor). Even the death of his son does not seem to have as much pain as the pain caused by his wife, and the author brings this out clearly.

About the style of the book itself, it left me with the feeling that the author did not manage to answer all the questions about Anne Rutledge in particular but decided to publish anyway. He has consistently asked questions or made statements that suggest that his main quest was to prove that Abraham Lincoln really dated Anne Rutledge... The author may have answered this question 98% but there is that lingering 2%. Did he or did he not? That is the question.

Mary Todd is portrayed as a witch and I really think she indeed was a witch. I once read somewhere that the greatest tragedy of Abraham Lincoln's life was not his assassination, but his marriage. Now I finally understood why.

This book provided a great review of the historical events that took place during Lincoln's lifetime. Additionally, the details presented regarding Mary Todd Lincoln and the other women in Abraham Lincoln's life were surprising as well as entertaining.

Ann Rutledge was-based on a few interviews and contradictory memories of old New Salem villagers FIFTY years after the fact "the only woman with whom Abraham Lincoln shared a deep and wonderful love"??

This in spite of the fact that Lincoln HIMSELF was quoted as saying that he fell in love with his wife when he met her and never fell out?

Mary Lincoln is not a very sympathetic historical figure. That is the only reason I can think of for some Lincoln historians to seem to NEED to build this great, transcendent love of Abraham Lincoln for someone other than his wife based on such scant evidence. It could be-it perhaps IS-true that Lincoln courted and fell in love with Ann Rutledge. But there is absolutely no evidence that he spent the rest of his epic life mourning for her-much less that he was never able to love deeply again.

The Lincoln marriage for all it's turbulence and dysfunction was NOT loveless.

"President Lincoln loved the mother of his children deeply and tenderly".//quote Elizabeth Keckley (seamstress and confidante to Mary Lincoln)

"Mary Lincoln has her husband's deepest love. This is a matter in which one woman cannot deceive another".// quote Elizabeth Blair Lee (contemporary and friend of Mary Lincoln during the White House years")

"If they did not love one another, they could have fooled me. I spent most Sundays with them in their home".// quote Lewis Baker, (Mary's nephew)

And finally...what did the great man himself say about marriage in general and his wife in particular?

"Marriage is neither heaven NOR hell. It is purgatory".

"My wife is as handsome as when she was a girl. I, a poor nobody-fell in love with her then. And what is more I have never fallen out."

And most significantly of all, what message did Abraham Lincoln choose to have engraved into his wife's wedding band? LOVE IS ETERNAL.

CASE CLOSED.

I read Winkler's fantasy in the library in two hours. Don't intend to purchase it.

I read some of this book using the(CLICK TO LOOK INSIDE)link. Here's some advice to anyone coming across this book on Amazon online. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR YOUR MONEY ON THIS PIECE OF WORTHLESS TRASH. There are undoubtly a few good books about Abraham Lincoln out there to find & read. Without including this one,with it's written assassination attack on Lincoln's mother & father, esp.his mother regarding her reputation. How easy is it to posthumously slander those who cannot speak up in their own defense. While Nancy Hanks Lincoln may have been illlegitimate, sincerely doubt she was immoral in any way. To sum it up, THIS ENTIRE BOOK STINKS ALMOST AS BAD AS HORSE MANURE.
