Lincoln’s Boys is an intimate look into Abraham Lincoln’s White House through the lives of his two closest aides and confidants Lincoln’s official secretaries John Hay and John Nicolay. Hay and Nicolay became the gatekeepers of the Lincoln legacy. After the President’s death, when unauthorized biographers spread sensational tales relating to the martyred president, the Lincoln family gave the two men exclusive access to Lincoln’s papers, and they got to work creating an official biography that put forth the interpretation of Lincoln’s life that still dominates today.
When you’re finished reading Lincoln’s Boys, try Meacham’s Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power.
